We are in the midst of summer – warm temperatures, sunny skies, the perfect weather for some summer cocktails. After all, who better to provide a little libation inspiration than the Loopers with some recipes for some of the most sought-after mixes in the nation. Not only are we bringing you information on where to go and what to order at the hottest spots in Indy, but we are giving you these recipes to create cocktails from the comfort of your very own home, where the drinks are cheaper and the pants are optional.
We’ll always have a soft spot in our hearts for our go-to summer favorites, but these days we’ve been wanting to shake it up a bit. When Mother Nature decides to crank up the heat, we suggest cooling down with a cocktail that’s a bit more unique.
Although Deep Eddy Vodka co-founder Chad Auler is always playing around with new flavors, not all of them end up in bottles sold across the country. But the Deep Eddy Lemon caught on with him and others at Deep Eddy as a refreshing new option. And like past Deep Eddy flavors, this one incorporates a natural ingredient that’s always been traditional in vodka drinks. Deep Eddy Lemon, featuring real lemon juice and Texas aquifer water, is like biting into a sweet, ripe lemon or sipping on your grandma’s homemade lemonade -with a kick.
With the addition of fresh strawberries, kiwi and a bright lemon garnish this drink is sure to shake up any summer party.
1.5 oz. Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka
.5 oz. fresh lemon juice
.5 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. Soda Water
Shake the Lemon Vodka, lemon and simple syrup mixture over ice. Top off with soda water and garnish your glass.
