4)  Pink Vodka Lemonade Cocktail

The tint of pink lemonade is the main character defining ingredient of this refreshing cocktail. You can also use normal lemonade and add grenadine syrup or a normal syrup. This does two things, firstly, it gives it a nice splash of pink and secondly, it balances the acidity of lemonade along with adding a sweet touch. Vodka lends the characteristic kick to the cocktail. This crowd-pleasing blend is easy to whip up.

5)  Lavender Lemonade Martini

Martini, in itself, is a hotshot addition to any grand evening, but you can make it even better with a floral and zesty twist. The recipe starts with a base of lemon juice and then the star ingredient lavender juice is added. You can use homemade lavender juice with dried lavender buds for a more intense flavour. Vodka is then added as the base spirit for the cocktail which gives it a clean and crisp backdrop, allowing flavours of the lemon and lavender to shine through.
