I am seriously missing sunshine right now. It’s been stormy for what feels like ages and I am ready to get in the sun again.

I mean, with Memorial Day on Monday, how in the world can I tolerate more rain??

I need sun, a patio, a grill and a pitcher of this vodka strawberry lemonade!

If you ever knew me in high school, you would know that Red Robin was the hangout for us choir/theater kids.

Their strawberry lemonade was SO good and I could never resist the bottomless option. Unlimited refills of strawberry-lemon sugar-packed goodness? Well I don’t mind if I do. Just throw in those bottomless fries too…

By the way, my 10 year high school reunion is this year… GAH how is this happening already?! I am seriously not prepared/not sure how I feel about going.

Did you go to yours? Is it as awkward as I’m imagining in my head (keep in mind I have no ex’s to run into, so we can remove that factor right now *phew*)?

Reunions and Red Robin aside, this recipe for strawberry lemonade is perfection. Fresh strawberry and lemon juices make all the difference in this sweet and sour refreshment.

It’ll quench your thirst and give you the buzz that you probably wished you had all throughout high school… Juuuuust kidding.

Well, sort of.

I’ll be indulging in this sunshine in a glass over the long weekend, even if I am inside looking out on endless clouds…

    Oh goodness, I just love the idea of this! I can’t say I’ve ever had Red Robin’s strawberry lemonade, but I do love lemonade of all kinds! This sounds so delicious, indeed!

    Simple syrup worked better since regular sugar doesn’t dissolve in cold solutions.
