Celebrate National Lemonade Day Skinnygirl Style

National Lemonade Day is August 20th, and we can’t think of any better way to celebrate than adding a little “kick” to this summertime staple! Skinnygirl Cocktails was nice enough to send over some intriguing lemonade cocktail recipes, and I thought I would share them on the blog today.  These recipes reminded me how much I love the taste of lemonade.  On a hot summer day there’s nothing like a light and icy drink to cool you down. In my middle school days I would reach for a pitcher of lemonade, in my twenties, I’m reaching for one of these babies. Happy bartending!
