2 perfect lemonade cocktail recipes to pair with UFC Vegas 7

The perfect lemonade cocktail recipe to pair with UFC Vegas 7.

As Summer winds down it’s always important for us to hang on to the summer feeling as long as we can. One of the staples of Summer is an ice-cold glass of fresh lemonade and the way this year is turning out, we’ll need to add some vodka or rum.

We, of course, don’t want to encourage drinking away your problems. Instead, pair this perfect cocktail recipe with your UFC Vegas 7 viewing experience and National Lemonade Day and no one will judge you for boozing it up.

Check out this cocktail recipe, created by Trevor Schneider, Reyka Vodka National Ambassador:
