Frozen Gin Lemonade

30 minutes or fewer
 
Mashing the lemon slices with the sugar releases the oil from the skins for extra-lemony flavor that’s not too sour. Blend drinks in two batches so there’s plenty of room in the blender for the ice to chop evenly. You can substitute vodka for the gin, or just omit the alcohol.

Comments on this Recipe

This is really good. And my friends agree. It's light, cold, refreshing, and tasty.

Eating all the lemon poppyseed loaf at home, needs some gin of the same kind. Worth the wait when you are having some left over from a party.
