How cute are these???

This recipe is from Food Network’s Tyler Florence, but basically it’s just amped up lemonade. The only difference is placing it in ziploc baggies and adding a straw for fun. This recipe makes about 8 servings, so adjust to the size of your tailgate party. And…I love that it’s the color of our team – GEORGIA TECH!!!!

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water, plus 8 cups
4 lemons, juiced
Vodka, about 1 cup
Ice cubes

In a saucepan, combine the sugar and 1/3 cup water and place over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then cook the sugar until dissolved but the syrup is still clear. Do not cook the sugar until it starts to turn color. Remove from heat and cool. Once completely cooled, combine in a pitcher the syrup, 8 cups water, the lemon juice, vodka and ice and stir to combine. Now comes the fun! Pour the drink into ziploc baggies and add a straw.

Then place in a cooler with ice. How fun is this drink????

I also found another recipe using agave nectar that I might try instead. It’s from she

3/4 cup agave nectar (more if you prefer the drink sweeter)
8 cups water
4-5 fresh lemons, juiced
1 cup vodka
Ice cubes
Fresh lemon and lime slices for garnish (optional)

In a pitcher, add all of the ingredients, mixing very well. Pour the mixture into 8 to 10 plastic zip-closed bags. Add a few lemon and lime slices. Chill until ready to serve.
