Last night I was having friends over. I experimented with some ways to make refreshing and fancy-looking drinks.
I came up with this vodka lemonade drink. Trust me it is the most refreshing Vodka Lemonade drink you can ever have!
The drink has a sophisticated taste, nice presentation, yet, very easy to prepare.
Even my dog was craving it :)
Here are the ingredients:
- 2 Lemons
- Fresh Ginger
Now, how to prepare this delicious Vodka Lemonade:
1- Cut the ginger into small pieces, put them in the blender, add some water, and blend very well. When the ginger turns into juice, strain the liquid into another container. We will use this later.
Note: it is important to strain the liquid to remove any lumps and ginger fibers.
2- Squeez 2 lemons. Put the lemon and ginger juice in the blender. Add a handful of fresh mint leaves. Add 4 tablespoons of sugar. Blend very well.
3- Add vodka into the mixture. This quantity will be enough for 4-5 glasses. So you can make the drink as strong as you like.
4- Optional: add half a teaspoon of rosewater.
5- Slowly add ice cubes into the blender. One by one and keep on mixing. Keep adding ice cubes until the juice turns into a snow flaky mixture.
For presentation, I transferred the vodka lemonade into wine glasses and added mint leaves and lemon peel as a garnish for decoration.
We new friends!
