Limonata: A Perfect Labor Day Cocktail

For many, Labor day weekend marks the end of summer; but for me, sharing my Limonata cocktail with friends on Labor Day reminds me how wonderful a sunny, summer day can be.

1 ½ ounces Citrus Vodka
1/2 oz limoncello
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
3 generous mint sprigs
Sprite

 

Add ingredients to empty mixing glass in this order:
Mint, syrup, lime
Muddle firmly but briefly
Top w/ vodka, limoncello & ice
Shake 20x & strain over fresh ice.
Top with sprite and garnish with mint and citrus.
