Vodka lemonade

Coming up with creative drinks isn't difficult when you use vodka, peach schnapps, and lemonade as ingredients. While vodka and schnapps of all types are present in any number of beverages and vodka drinks, the citrus sweetness of lemonade, whether in a quick splash or as the main event, adds something different to your cocktail. These three ingredients mix well together in a variety of combinations, and you can add them to other mixers in a shot or a cocktail as well.
