This recipe came from the Food Network show, Cooking For Real. I haven't made it yet, but it sounds like just the kind of thing to have while doing some outdoor cooking. I'm posting here so I don't lose it and for nutrition counts.

Delicious! This lemonade is tart, sweet, and oh so smooth. It's the kind of drink that can really sneak up on you. I thought that I had vanilla vodka, but found that all I had was raspberry vodka, so I made Sunny's Hard Raspberry Lemonade instead :) We loved this and went through the entire pitcher in no time. Thank you for sharing this quick and easy is definitely a keeper!! *Made for Fall 2008 My 3 Chefs*
