Lazy Day Limeade Cocktail

The Summertime is the perfect excuse to want to be lazy, lounging next to the pool with a cool, refreshing drink in your hand. Such a lovely notion but it doesn't always work out that way. However, even if you are short on time, I have the perfect concoction for you that takes hardly any time at all to create!

Tequila is the perfect compliment to the tartness of the strawberries and lime, one sip and you will be hooked! I made this for a game night gathering and it was gone in a flash. Just be careful, this can be a bit deceiving, it doesn't taste quite as strong as it actually is! I used Simple Limeade for this version, I prefer this and Califia brand because they almost taste homemade versus some of the other brands. This will give it more of a 'craft cocktail' cocktail taste. There is definitely a difference in taste if you use certain limeades but, rest assured...It is tasty no matter which limeade you end up using!

 I used a strawberry vodka but if you don't want to buy a special bottle just for this, take about 1/2 a cup of regular vodka and muddle with fresh strawberries, let sit overnight in a air tight container. 

6 oz limeade
2 oz tequila
1 1/2 oz strawberry vodka
1 lime sliced
1/2 cup sliced strawberries

In a cocktail shaker, place a few of the sliced strawberries and lime slices. Muddle thoroughly. Add the tequila, vodka, and limeade. Shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. Place remaining lime slices strawberries in two glasses with ice. Top with the Lazy Day Limeade.
