Grown Up Pink Lemonade

Booyah, we made it to our 100th blog post! Brittany and I spent a lot of time contemplating what this epic post would be. Since it had to be epic, it reminded us of the Epic List. 

As many may know, the four of us who contribute to the blog met three years ago in the dorms. While living together, our guy friends made a list of things to do before college ended. We wanted to top them! So, the Epic List was born. It is, for obvious reasons, more girly and fun. Homemade pizza, check. Start a dance party, no big deal, it happened. Wine and dine, check. Beer cocktail, unfortunately was not completed...yet.

As Brittany and I were reminiscing about the list and beer cocktail, it occurred to us that it was added to the list even after it was mounted to the dorm door and events were crossed off. It was a pretty big running joke for us though. I, April, went out and bought a ladle, just for the occasion. We were going to use a leftover animal cracker container to mix it up in. Remember people, we lived in the dorms and there is only so much at our disposal. Sadly, it didn't get accomplished while living in the dorms. Three years later and here you have it!

This cocktail is a more grown up version of what we would have made three years ago. Be careful with it too. I had a friend freshman year call this a "Pink Panty Dropper". It tastes like pink lemonade, which is why it could result in such ridiculousness. Using good vodka is a necessity, such as Stoli or Absolut. This will make a great pitcher cocktail for you next party. It is pink, girly, lemony, refreshing and cute.

We are being a little bit of rule breakers with this beer cocktail. The rule was all four of us had to be present in order to check anything off. Seeing as Kelsey and Emily are in Spain for the next two months, I think we can get away with checking it off. Our fun and epicness can't stand up to European adventures, lets be honest. 

2 cups good quality vodka
1 (quart sized) packet Crystal light pink lemonade
1 1/2 cups (2-12ounce cans) diet cherry 7UP
1 (12 ounces) can light beer
Oodles of ice
Lemon wedges, for garnish
Raspberries, for garnish

  1. Pour the vodka and Crystal light into a large pitcher.
  2. Fill the pitcher half way with ice.
  3. Pour the remaining ingredients into the pitcher, stirring to combine.
  4. Serve immediately, with garnishes.
