I have a very fond memory of attempting to make fresh squeezed lemonade with my husband and kids one hot summer evening. Little did I know how many lemons we needed for that pitcher of lemonade. Two trips to the grocery store later, and a lot of lemons...we had an icy cold pitcher of lemonade. Years later, indulging on this summer time treat, we decided to add some mint, fruit and my favorite sparkle for this lovely refreshing summer cocktail. Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Bubbles!
2 oz. Rum
1 oz. Lemonade
Fresh berries (I love the trifecta of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries)
Make ice cubes with berries the night before. In a small tin shaker add regular ice, a few berries, rum and lemonade. Slap the mint in your hand until you can smell it from about a foot away from your nose. Add the mint to your tin and shake vigorously until tin is cold to the touch. Strain and pour onto berry ice cubes. Top off with more berries and champagne.
