    Great summer drink! I combined everything in the blender and this came together quickly. Great drink for our 4th of July cookout.

    Wow, was this good duonyte. So sweet, tart and tangy. I loved it. The mint was delicious in this cocktail. It was a very, very easy beverage to make and drink. It was so refreshing. I'll be drinking a few of these this summer. When my mint is growing wild. Thanks for sharing a new favorite.

    Is this ever GOOD! It’s so refreshing and clean tasting. A seriously delicious drink and I can’t wait to make this over the summer when it’s hot and sultry out. The lemon partnered perfectly with the mint. I first thought the amount of vodka may be a bit too much, but it wasn’t at all, it went down so smooth that you can barely tell there is any vodka, which can be dangerous. Yum, yum! Thank you, duonyte, for sharing. Made it for “Players Favorites - 5 Star Gems”.

    I made it yesterday. It was so warm yesterday and this drink was very refreshing. We loved the taste. It's just perfect. I didn't add the sparkling water and ginger ale to the blender. I added it after in the pitcher and stired. Thanks duonyte :) Made for PRMR tag game

    Loved this drink!!! I love lemon so this was an easy tag for me. I made this for 1 serving and used fresh squeezed lemon juice, therefore my photo isn't very yellowish other then the lemon slice. I thought I had some frozen mint leaves but found only sage, thyme and chives, so had to omit them and I used Sprite Zero in place of the sparkling water and ginger ale. I think the mint would even make this more refreshing, will plan to make it again when I buy mint leaves again. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for 123 Tag Game.
