On a summer day, what sounds more appetizing than vodka Lemon Chicken with a refreshing ice-cold lemonade! Although, of course, we have to turn things up and create a delicious fresh strawberry hard lemonade cocktail created with Monkey in Paradise Vodka.
Monkey in Paradise is an award-winning, Florida based pure vodka. Once winning the 2017 Double Gold Medal at the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco. We’ve used this vodka in past cocktail recipes and it has easily become on our #1 choice of vodka!
While cocktails are more our forté, we love whipping thing up meals in the kitchen! We decided to share our super simple to make Lemon Chicken Recipe with Lemon Vodka Sauce and a side of Roasted Potatoes plus Grilled Asparagus.
And what else better to go with Lemon Chicken than a Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail. This Cocktail is served in a Mason Jar filled with crushed ice, slices of fresh lemon and strawberry for extra refreshment! th real hero of this cocktail is our easy to make at home strawberry simple syrup!
How to Make Strawberry Simple Syrup
For simple syrup, all you’ll need is:
Equal Parts Boiling Hot Water
Equal Parts Sugar
We suggest using within 7 days or less!
Prefer Soda Water over Tonic Water?
Absolutely, Go for it! Tonic Water is a great addition for cocktail drinkers that adds a distinctive bitter flavor that pairs well with fruit acids and sugars. Although if you only have soda water at hand, that works too. Most importantly, the key is to things light and refreshing!
