i always taste and tell

This is a recipe I originally heard of a few years ago, and fell in love with it from the name alone!  On Pinterest however, they just call it Raspberry Beer Lemonade.

I actually tried it for the first time a few months ago when I had a few friends over on a Friday night before we went out.

It was delicious – and potent, but I could not tell until much later.  I lost my camera that night, so beware!



2 cans of frozen pink lemonade
a 6 pack of Corona or Corona Light
1 bottle of vodka


Let the Pink Lemonade defrost enough and then pour everything into a large pitcher and mix it up!
My pitcher was not big enough to fit everything at once, so as we drank it, I added the rest of the vodka and beer

Throw in some raspberries of sliced strawberries for a yummy treat!


It is officially summer now!  And what better way to celebrate than a frozen cocktail?

I really like this recipe, because I think if you are having friends over, not only will everyone obviously love it – but it will look impressive too.

This does take a little plan ahead, but if you do that it’s so easy!

bottle of riesling
2 cups strawberries (i sliced mine a bit just to make it easier on the blender)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice


Mix everything except for ONE CUP of your reisling together in a blender until pureed.

put into ice cube trays and freeze.
NOTE: I didn’t have enough ice cube trays so I used cupcake tins and it was just the same.

once frozen put into a blender with the remaining one cup of wine and serve!

A perfect summer slushy!
