L = Lemons

Who hasn’t heard the saying, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade?”

Well, hell, if life is going to be that harsh on me by handing out lemons, I say forget the lemonade and make lemon vodka. Before you stop reading to run off and get your pen and paper, believe me, it won’t be necessary. This will be one of the easiest recipes I give you.

What you need: an airtight jar, lemons, vodka and time.

Slice the lemons thinly and place them in the jar. You don’t need to pack them, just fill the jar. Then add vodka, fill it up to the top. Next tighten the lid, place in the fridge and forget about it for a month. Yes, I said a month.

So after the longest 30 days of your life has passed, it is time to break out the lemon vodka. Now I do realize that they make lemon flavored vodka and sell it at every store under the sun, along with almost every flavor you can think of. But, hey, they sell lemonade at the store too. We all know nothing beats homemade.

It’s time to start thinking outside the box and have so fun with lemons.       


  1. Since I don't drink I will have to stick with the lemonade. Besides I am too impatient anyways. There would be no way I could wait a month.


  2. I like your thinking! But I hope life hasn't given you too many lemons lately.

  3. You don't have to twist my arm! This sounds delicious, and worth the wait. Yay.

  4. I really like easy recipes, and it sounds very refreshing. It's amazing how many different versions are out there now. I think there's even chocolate vodka. In that case, I'd skip the vodka part. Julie

  5. Speaking of thinking outside the box, here's my brother's unorthodox version of that phrase: "When life hands you lemons, make grapes."

    Will your recipe work with grapes? Or should I just stop letting my brother have vodka?

  6. YOur post made my mouth pucker and have that weird feeling on the sides of my jaw. The same happens when I see pickles! I don't really drink . but this sounds good. Blessings, Joanne

  7. You can also do this exact same thing with pineapple slices instead of lemons. One of the yummiest things I've ever tasted!!!
