Balsamic Hard Lemonade

Some people like nothing better than a cold beer on a hot day.  Not me. For whatever reason, I have never liked the taste of beer (other than Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss - thanks to @Dave_Flys!).  This super refreshing beverage is my new summer fave.  Even better, when you make it with Just Like Sugar or Stevia or another natural no-cal sweetener, it's low-calorie!  Serve it with some baked chips and salsa, and you've got cocktail hour covered, without bloating your waistline.

  • 5 whole lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 cup Just Like Sugar (or sugar or artificial sweetener, whatever you prefer)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • Combine the lemon juice, Just Like Sugar, and water in a large pitcher and stir thoroughly.
  • Mix in the balsamic vinegar.
  • Add the vodka and stir.
Serves 2.
