My friend, Chellie, introduced me to this drink last summer and I have been a dedicated maker and drinker of this beverage ever since. For me it has become the drink for summer gatherings with friends. Served over a glass of ice with an extra sprig of mint, it is the perfect refreshment for the backyard, the cabin, the deck, a picnic, or wherever you can manage to hold one in your hand without spilling it (which may become a challenge if you drink too many in one evening).
Chellie made this originally with a can of frozen lemonade--and while I do offer that version of the recipe as a variation in my download for those who want the quick and dirty method, the recipe on the card tells you how to make these from scratch--meaning, you make your own lemonade with freshly squeezed lemons (not that you make your own vanilla vodka though--I'm not freakin' Martha over here--vanilla Stolis works fine where I come from).
Just take care not to drink too many--it is easy to do. Um, speaking from experience (like last weekend's experience at a friend's when I returned with a splitting sugar and alcohol headache after downing these all afternoon). You know, drink in moderation is all I am saying--for your own good.
