Rakomelo Strawberry Lemonade

Sweet, refreshing, and just enough “spike” to hit the spot. The Rakomelo Strawberry Lemonade is my all-time favorite summer cocktail.

In the summer, our backyard patio became our go-to spot for refreshing cocktails. A favorite cocktail among the family, super refreshing with enough sweetness and tartness and so easy to make.

And just like with any fruit, make sure it's in season.

Enjoy it!

Instructions

  1. In a cocktail shaker add the Rakomelo, lemon juice, strawberries and simple syrup. Muddle lightly. Fill shaker with ice and shake hard for 10-15 seconds.
