Icy Pink Deliciousness

I just love Susan Branch!  Raise your hand if you agree?  

Okay, I see all those hands.  (And if you're not sure who Susan Branch is, head on over here to meet her.)

Susan has some wonderful recipes in her books.  This particular one is from The Summer Book.

One of our summer favorites is a cocktail called "Skip and Go Naked."  The skip because it's so tasty and you want to skip around and the go naked because if you're not careful and have too many of these, you might start running round naked.  

The ingredient list is simple:

pink lemonade frozen lemonade

Now I know some of you might be saying beer?  I don't like beer!  Well, I can't stand the stuff, but mixed in this drink?  It's absolutely scrumptious.  Trust me (and trust Susan too).
Plus you will need a blender.
1.  Fill the blender half way with ice.
2.  Add 2/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate.
3.  Add 1/4 cup of vodka.
4.  Add 2/3 cup of cold beer.
5.  Blend together and pour into a glass - pretty glass preferred of course.
Icy pink deliciousness!
One for me and one for you.
Let's go enjoy these on the patio.  We could listen to some nice music and pray the June bugs don't crash into us.  (Thankfully, June bugs are almost done around these parts.)

And, at last, I have a fun post for Pink Saturday!
Come join the party over at Beverly's.

Such a treat to see you too!  
Thank you so much for dropping in for a visit.
