My kid’s last day of school is tomorrow. How crazy is that? It’s really hard to believe that summer is so close considering we just had snow 3 weeks ago! Well since Memorial Day is only days away and since that pretty much signifies the beginning of grilling/picnic/pool season, Nicole and I decided to do a drink along those lines.
I made this Sarasota Lemonade because what says summer more than lemonade? I’m not really sure the origins of the name of this recipe but it’s definitely delicious. It’s sweet Moscato wine mixed with pink lemonade and 7Up. It’s sweet and bubbly and everything I look for in a drink. I love using frozen fruit in drinks like this because it keeps them nice and cold but doesn’t water them down.
Nicole made Red, White, and Blue Sangria – perfect for your Memorial Day barbecue!
- 2 bottles Moscato wine
- 1 can pink lemonade concentrate thawed
- 3 cups 7Up or Sprite
- frozen strawberries
In a large pitcher, stir together the Moscato, pink lemonade concentrate, and soda. Before serving, fill each glass with frozen strawberries and ice. Pour drink over top.
