Last week it was in the upper 80s and I was all like “ugh summer” but also excited for frozen cocktails and pool parties.

This week it’s overcast and rainy. April showers bring May flowers…what does May rain bring?

Upside to the rain: I booked a painter to paint my office but he said he was booked out 5-6 weeks because of all the spring rain we’d had so I was bummed I had to wait until summer to finally make my office what I envision it (like a 10-year-olds dream come true: full rainbows, unicorns, and sprinkles).

Downside to the rain: My painter called the other day and is painting…today because he can’t do outdoor work. So I had 3 days to empty my entire office.

Be sure to follow along on Instagram stories for before and after photos! Maybe I’ll eventually do a post titled How to feel like a tween in your 40-year old blogger office or I didn’t know bloggers were 10 years old or A Unicorn Barfed: the story of my new office.

In the meantime today, rain or not, I’ll be drinking Boozy Frozen Lemonade. Listening to my dog bark at painters is just so much fun!

No matter the weather, Boozy Frozen Lemonade is the perfect summer cocktail recipe. It’s a frozen lemonade slush filled with vodka!

When I was young we’d go to Universal Studios once in awhile and I always remember getting frozen lemonade there. I’m sure I got it other places too but back then frozen lemonade was just a theme-park thing; you couldn’t get it at every fair and mall stand like you can now. It was one of my favorite treats and it still is…especially now that I put vodka in it.

Move over daiquiris and margaritas, boozy lemonade with vodka has moved into town!

This is really a simple recipe and it’s got super lemony flavor. If you love lemon sorbet or frozen lemonade you’re going to love it. You can’t taste the vodka which is a good thing…and a bad thing, lol.

What is frozen lemonade?

Frozen lemonade comes in many forms. They range in thickness from snocone to icee and they’re sweet and tart all at the same time. Basically, they’re lemonade that’s been frozen and blended or frozen and churned like a granita.

Making frozen lemonade into a drink

Now, most of the frozen lemonades I’ve ever had are eaten with a spoon until they’re melty and you drink the remains. But I love making homemade frozen lemonade into a drink (whether or not it’s for adults or kids). That’s the beauty of making recipes at home: you can make them to your liking.

Want a drinkable frozen lemonade? Add more liquid.

Want a spoonable frozen lemonade? Add less liquid.

I’ve been told that my frozen lemonade is a bit like Chick-fil-A or the Minute Maid frozen lemonade. I’ll take those compliments!

Ingredients in frozen lemonade

You just need a few simple ingredients:

  • Lemonade (use your favorite flavor, Minute Maid or Country Time…whatever you like)
  • Lemon Sorbet – my secrete ingredient! It adds so much more lemon flavor than just lemonade.

Making boozy frozen lemonade

It’s super simple: you just replace some of the lemonade with vodka.

Another thing I love about making cocktails is that you can make them as strong or weak as you wish. The ratio for this recipe is 1 cup lemonade to 1 cup vodka but you can edit that depending on how strong you want your cocktail.

Love daiquiris or margaritas? Instead of vodka party punch, make this into a margarita by adding tequila or a daiquiri by adding rum!

  1. Can I use vanilla ice cream instead of the lemon sorbet? I made the copy cat version of Chick-Filet frozen lemonade with the vanilla ice cream and then just added my vodka .
    I like this recipe because less items and I had to use fresh squeezed lemons and zest. The vanilla ice cream tasted really good with the recipe I used before but want to make sure it will be fine with your recipe.
    Thank you. Enjoy what’s left of summer 😞
