THE LIFE WITHOUT LEMONS SPARKLE

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Perhaps its a little pretentious to create a blog cocktail but why not I say!  Blogging is nothing if not a little self indulgent so grab a lemon and try your hand a this delicious grown up version of a slushie!



Of course you can also jest at the irony of having a cocktail called a Life Without Lemons Sparkle that is all about lemon- the joy of a little sarcasm......

THE LIFE WITHOUT LEMONS SPARKLE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lemon, peeled and quartered and seeds removed (they can make it a little bitter if you keep them in)- see video for how to peel a lemon.

  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  • 50ml limoncello or other lemon liqueur
  • 50ml Vodka
  • Handful of ice cubes

METHOD

1. Put the lemon pieces into a blender, sprinkle over the sugar and leave to steep to let the sugar dissolve for a few minutes
2.Pour in the limoncello and vodka, throw in the ice cubes and whizz away on the ice crush setting.
3. When everything's combined, thickened and sparkly ice-white, pour into a large tumbler and enjoy- hopefully sat, relaxing in the sunshine.
