Who doesn’t like lemonade on a warm day? I certainly do and my husband does as well. We buy a lot of lemonade and often drink it on ice out of the porch when it’s warm outside. It’s cool and refreshing and brightens up our day.
So when I was trying to come up with a new cocktail and the bottle of pear vodka was staring me in the face I kept going back to lemonade. I’m not sure why as pear and lemonade don’t seem to go together but the more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea.
I knew I needed something to tie the two items together and ginger seemed to be the key. I love anything with pear ginger in it and lemonade is delicious with ginger. While I would have loved to add fresh ginger, I needed more of a filled and gingerale fit the bill.
This refreshing cocktail is made with just 3 ingredients. I poured it into a tall glass with ice, garnished it with a lemon, and added a little sparkle with a gold sugared rim. It’s the perfect summer cocktail for hanging out by the pool or just for sipping on the porch. It’s sweet, tastes of lemons and pears, and has hints of ginger. Delicious!
