Cucumber Rosemary Vodka Lemonade

The name of this recipe suggests that there's an awful lot going on here in this cocktail, doesn't it? The reality of it is that couldn't be further from the truth. OK, OK I guess it could be, say if you mixed Coke Zero and vodka (not that I've ever done that), but it's pretty easy nonetheless. I found this great grocery store brand lemonade with just a hint of carbonation that was delicious for mixing. It was also zero calories, which doesn't hurt when a drink is so good you could have about ten of them. The flavors go together beautifully, with only a hint of rosemary, and a nice little vodka kick. Now, let's address the question you're really asking: the answer is Anthropologie; the napkins are from Anthropologie. You're welcome.

Cucumber Rosemary Vodka Lemonade
Makes 2 cocktails

8 oz. lemonade
4 oz. vodka
2 sprigs rosemary
6 slices of cucumber

Place rosemary and cucumber in a shallow bowl and cover with vodka. Allow to sit for several hours, if time allows. If not, just make the cocktail already.

Add vodka, rosemary and cucumber to a glass over ice. Add lemonade. If your rosemary just isn't perky anymore, just switch it out for a new sprig as garnish.
