LEMONADE MARTINI for NATIONAL LEMONADE DAY!


Happy
NATIONAL LEMONADE DAY
If you add booze it's Lemon Aide!

Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than an ice cold glass of fresh lemonade . . . . with booze in it!  Lemons have some great health benefits, their acidic qualities bring out the flavors of foods and adding a twist of lemon to a cocktail always perks up the taste buds.  The fruit itself is packed with tart goodness and the rind (zest) is loaded with lemon oils which are like nuclear powered lemon magnificence.

The ancient Egyptians believed that eating or drinking lemons would provide an effective protection against a variety of poisons, and today's knowledge of the health benefits of lemons confirms this.  Lemons are known to have antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers.

I believe that if life gives you lemons,
you should make lemonade...

whose life has given them vodka,
and have a party
