It’s summer and that means heat which means BBQs, parties, and plenty of other opportunities to enjoy refreshing cocktails. In our family one of these opportunities presents itself once a month when we have family dinners. Each month we get together with my husbands’ parents, his sister and her family to relax, have a few drinks, and enjoy good food.

The Ingredients

Our last dinner was Italian themed and what better liqueur is there to pair with Italian food than Limoncello? Limoncello is a sweet lemon liqueur that make tasty drinks and eliminates the need for simple syrup in lemon inspired drinks.

For our monthly dinner I used PepeCello Limoncello, Graingers Deluxe Organic Vodka, and St. Elder’s Elderflower Liqueur to make three delicious cocktails that have great flavor and pack a slight punch.  Elderflower liqueur is made from the flowers on the Elderflower bush and has a light, sweet, floral taste.

The Cocktails

The first cocktail I made is a Lemonade Cooler.

3 Oz Simply Lemonade

2 Oz Limoncello

Grainger Deluxe Organic Vodka (1 Oz)

1 Oz Club Soda

Place ice in a low-ball glass. Add lemonade, Pepecello, and Vodka. Stir. Then add splash of club soda. You can make this cocktail with any lemonade but I prefer the Simply as it is a bit more natural.

Cocktail number two is very similar except it adds St. Elder’s Elderflower Liqueur which gives it a light flowery taste.
