When Life Gives You Lemons… Make Lemonade Cocktails

Make lemonade cocktails! Today is National Lemonade Day! But this year, we’re not celebrating with any old lemonade you can buy on the sidewalk. Instead, we’re mixing up our favorite lemonade cocktails and adding a fun twist to this summer favorite.

Frozen Coconut

3 tbsp frozen lemonade
1 ½ cups ice
Lime wedge for garnish

Place ice, lemonade and rum in a blender. Blend until slushy and pour into a glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!

Classic Shandy
