Holy Bananas! It’s already Friday again. I have this nagging feeling that summer is going to go by so quickly this year.  Anyone else? Why does summer seem to fly by when winter seems to drag on? I wish it were the other way around.

Anyway, today’s drink happened by accident. A few weeks ago I was at the liquour store and saw a fun-looking pink bottle. To me, It’s exciting to try new things so I picked it up. It’s called Sweet Revenge and the flavor is sour strawberry; basically fresh strawberries and citrus.

The other night my friend Krista (the one that’s moving back to town) somehow got talking about it and she told me an amazing recipe to try. Just mix the Sweet Revenge with lemonade and strawberry puree.

So the following day, I whipped one up! Let me tell you, it’s pretty darn fantastic! If summer had a drink, this may be it!  It’s light, fruity, tart, and incredibly refreshing!

Spiked Strawberry Lemonade

serves 1

Here's what you will need:
1 ounce strawberry puree*
2 ounces Sweet Revenge
4 ounces lemonade (I used Simply Lemonade.)

Fill a glass with ice. The add the strawberry puree, Sweet Revenge, and lemonade. Stir to mix. Garnish with a fresh strawberry, lemon wheel, and a cute straw!

*To make strawberry puree, just throw some fresh strawberries in a blender or food processor and pulse until they become a liquid.

This could also be a fun drink to serve in one of those big drink dispensers or even as a punch with big scoops of lemon sherbet floating in it. Talk about yum!

    Mmm…that sounds delicious! I’ve never heard of Sweet Revenge but I think I’m going to like it. They also have strawberry vodka now, which is really tasty.

      It’s new to me too! But I think there are a lot of possibilities with it.

    Looks so good, Michael! Sweet Revenge is new to me, I’m going to have to look for it next time I’m out. Do you like hard apple ciders too? I love ’em. Strongbow and Crispin are my faves. My aunt recently told me about Somersby, anxious to try that one too. Enjoy your weekend!!!
