Erren's Hard Lemonade
This Homemade Hard Lemonade recipe is everything great about summer drinks - its sweet, tart, and refreshing, but with a bit of a kick!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 6 servings
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup granulated sugar or more to taste
- 6 cups lemon-lime soda chilled
- Citrus flavored vodka chilled
- Orange liquor about a shot
- 4-6 lemons juiced (depending on size and taste)
- Lemon slices
I didn't say how much vodka because everyone is different and I thought I'd leave that part up to you.
In a small saucepan, bring water and sugar to a simmer. Cook until sugar dissolves to create a simple syrup. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a large pitcher/jug combine the simple syrup, vodka, orange liquor and lemon juice. Mix well. Add the soda at the end to help retain the carbonation.
Serve over ice with lemon slices.
