Over here at Making Lemonade, we take our lemonade seriously. So seriously, in fact, that I have taken it upon myself to test out various lemonade recipes and play with ingredients all summer long in pursuit of the best mixtures out there. I do this for the love of lemonade and for all of you. You’re welcome. 😉
We’re kicking off the summer of lemonade with this tipsy mermaid lemonade, which can be summed up in three words: Simple. Summer. Sips.
Ohhhh, I like how that sounds, don’t you?!
This drink embodies all three of those words: first, it’s simple and easy. The turquoise color embodies summer and reminds me of the ocean. And you’ll enjoy sipping it poolside all summer long!
The dash of Blue Curacao gives it a beautiful ombre look when poured:
While this particular drink is made with rum, you can always use Malibu coconut rum instead for an instant trip to the tropics!
Also, switch up the garnishes. We love cherries and lemons for a colorful look, but you can add in a skewer of pineapple and lime to switch things up. No mater what you choose, you’ll enjoy this refreshing summer spiked drink!
