chef Michael Smith's hard lemonade. I have seen all sorts of recipes for alcoholic lemonade but this is the simplest. No muss no fuss.

Not much I can say, other than "YUM". We made a few cocktails last night, and enjoyed them very much. Even with the price of fresh lemons (any citrus) this season, they were still cheaper to make "home-made" (and tasted great), rather than buying the bottles! I honestly cannot say the exact amount of sugar or booze I used... I just kept adding here & there until it was to our liking. Thanks for posting a keeper for our summer cookouts! (Made for PRMR)


  1. Fill a large pitcher with ice. Pour in vodka, sugar, lemon zest and juice. Stir well to dissolve the sugar. Fill the pitcher with water and stir again.
