If you’ve decided to host a barbecue or an event this weekend, you know how expensive it can be just to get food prepared. Adding alcohol to that equation can be the kiss of death to your budget. So how can you provide adult refreshments to a group in a way that won’t send you into too much credit card debt? We’ve got the perfect easy, delicious, and affordable cocktail that will wow your guests and be friendly to your wallet.
Streaker lemonade is a brilliant way to stretch your dollar and impress your guests with its unique qualities. It’s similar to dirty lemonade, except you use Corona instead of Sprite. The Corona is a surprisingly tasty addition to the lemonade, with a refreshing twist on a drink that’s often too sweet. At the bar where I used to work in college, we called this the “streaker” because if you drank too many of them, you were likely to, well, streak across the quad.
1 handle of vodka
2 two-liter bottles of lemonade
4 Corona beers
Sliced citrus fruit
Combine the vodka and lemonade in a large cooler. Add the citrus fruit. When guests arrive, add the Coronas to the cooler (you don’t want the Corona to sit in the mix too long, or it’ll lose its carbonation), and serve over ice.
*This recipe is potent – for a less alcoholic drink, add another bottle of lemonade. Remember to always drink responsibly and use a designated driver.
