Sparkling Lemonade & Vodka

Spruce up your ordinary vodka tonic with this sparkling lemonade drink. What I particularly love about this cocktail is the lemonade is made in a pitcher and is non-alcoholic. Guests can spike it any way they want and for those who don't, it will remain a beautiful delicious drink. Everyone can sip on something pretty whether a cocktail or cocktail!

1 1/2 cups lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar (or stevia)
1 liter sparkling water

Directions: In small saucepan combine lemon juice and sugar. Let cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves, stir occasionally. Remove and let cool.

Pour lemon syrup into glass pitcher and add 1 liter of sparkling water.

Place a couple berry ice cubes in a highball glass. Add 1/2 cup of the lemonade, 2 oz. of vodka, and stir to combine. Top with a little more sparkling water if it is too sweet. Enjoy!
