The Grinch Spiked Green Lemonade is made with lemonade, Midori melon liqueur, and vodka. All with red lemonade ice cubes.
It’s Grinch Week! But it’s also Tipsy Tuesday.
And most years December 1st is the start of Booze on the Shelf.
But most of this entire year has been booze on the shelf for people. 🙂
So we are skipping it this year.
Doesn’t mean I won’t be making cocktails.
Because clearly I am.
Now you may be saying…um, Peabody.
Didn’t you just say in your last post this week was in honor of a child?
But that child has a mom.
Plus The Grinch Spiked Green Lemonade can easily be just made into lemonade with some spring green food coloring for the kiddos.
The hearts are just lemonade and red food coloring.
Which speaking of the hearts…they will melt.
Because the Grinch became a bleeding heart. 😀
You could try making some Jell-O jiggler hearts and putting them in there if you want instead.
I actually like the bleeding heart theory though. 😀
Speaking of bleeding hearts…you will get your hands red when you plop the hearts into the drink.
Then you might forget about that and look down later and think to yourself why am I bleeding?
But you won’t be so it’s okay.
Especially since the UPS guy no longer rings the doorbell.
They just drop and go.
So they don’t have to look at me strangely when I open the door with red stained hands. 😀
If you are not a fan of melon flavored liqueur you can skip it but you will need to add more vodka (twist your arm).
You will also need some food coloring.
P.S. The Grinch would want you to buy my cookbook Holy Sweet!
