Iced Citrusade

Drink, Recipes

Shawn Connolly makes this perfect refresher for a hot day, with its fruity vodkas and dash of peach schnapps culminating in a drink that goes down easy and will have you thinking about seconds. Its mint-spig garnish screams summer, while the light, lemon flavor recalls neighborhood lemonade stands. “It’s a very mild citrus,” says Connolly. “We have two different types of vodka in it, [Absolut Mandarin and Citron]. It gives a nice flavor profile on the back end with the mint. It’s very refreshing to drink all summer long.”
