Summer is here. When it comes to libations that go well with the hot summertime weather, it is best to make sure those refreshments are sweet and beautiful; a lot of ice and alcohol is the drink of choice. The summer drink I like to call Summer in a cup is prepared with Ketel One Botanical Cucumber and Mint, Limoncello, topped with Tonic water. It's light, refreshing, low in calories, and, well, summer perfection, and it only requires three indigents!
I promise it's super easy, and your guests will ask for another round. If you have ever been to Italy, you will know about Italian Limoncello. But if you have yet to let me give you the history, lemons are one of the essential staples in the food of Sorrento, Italy. They have long been a staple in the region along the Italian Amalfi Coast in Capri and Sorrento. Because of this, the city's most famous product is its famous Italian Limoncello. This lemon drink is now considered Italy's national drink and can be found in stores and restaurants all over Italy. To make it simple, it's an adult lemonade. So let's get to how to make this rewarding but straightforward drink; I name this drink summer in a couple due to all the ingredients that remind me of Summer.
I typically make these one at a time rather than in a big batch. You will need one cup of Ice full to the top of the glass.
Add 1-2 shots of vodka
2-4 shots of Limoncello
With a bar spoon stir the ingredients together If you don’t have a bar spoon a regular spoon will work But you can hit the link to find bartending kit set

It’s just that simple to make this refreshing drink. Three Ingredients and lots of ice.
