Redberry vodka lemonade cocktail

I know it’s still basically winter, and here where I live the temperatures are in the negatives, however I did fell like making a summer-y drink anyways. I had a little bit of redberry vodka left over (my most recent recipe using it is my Love In The Time Of Corona Virus signature cocktail), and decided to make a Redberry Vodka Lemonade.

While my redberry vodka is homemade, there are store-bought versions you can use. My homemade version is similar to how one would make sloe gin. Take your red berries, prick them with a needle, and fill a jug up about halfway with the red berries. Then pour over vodka and let sit for 2 months. It’s really quite easy, and here in Ukraine it is extremely popular.

This drink isn’t strong, since lemonade is basically sugar water, but you can make it stronger by just upping the vodka amount. I did a standard 60 ml of vodka to 120 ml of lemonade so that my Collins glass with ice would fill up. I also made lemonade myself but you can use storebought for that too. In fact, if you do storebought everything, there’s really only two ingredients.

Since I no longer have my cocktail shaker (seriously, where did it go) I’ve been mixing drinks in the pitcher of my tea press. For this redberry vodka lemonade I just added the lemon juice, sugar, and water, and whisked everything up. Then I added the vodka and gave that a good stir.

To finish it off I added some ice cubes and a sprig of red berries and then poured over the redberry vodka lemonade all the way to the top. Okay, a centimeter from the top. Close enough. Garnished with a lemon wedge and served cold. This drink would be fantastic at some spring/summer garden parties don’t you think?
