The most perfect pool day isn’t complete without a cocktail or two. Recently I’ve found one of my favorite drinks to sip on while I’m lounging  by the pool on a Saturday.

So, we’ve all seen the Pinterest recipe floating around called Hippie Juice. There’s several different versions you can check out.

I’ve always wanted to try this stuff, so I decided to test it out. The original recipe calls for powdered pink Country Time Lemonade…not a fan. It’s just super sugary and tastes like exactly what it is-fake lemonade.

So, I improvised a bit. I subbed out the Country Time Lenonade with Simply Lemonade. It’s all natural, no preservatives, and definitely tastes as close to homemade lemonade as store bought lemonade possibly can.

Here’s my version of the recipe:

  • 1 cup of Smirnoff Watermelon Vodka
  • 1/3 cup of  Triple Sec
  • 1/2 pitcher of Simply Lemonade
  • Sliced Strawberries and Lemons
  • **optional: 1/3 cup of Malibu Coconut Rum

In my version, I left out the coconut rum, because I don’t really like it. But if you’re a fan of coconut rum, go for it.

So, there you have it! A super simple, super yummy cocktail you can quickly mix up for a fun day by the pool.

What’s your go-to summer beverage?
