This print by Laura Ruth titled Nostalgia made me start thinking about summer traditions... specifically, the different traditions I've had with my family when I was little as well as the new traditions I'm starting with my little "family" (Kevin and Meowmers). It's funny how the littlest things become traditions when you're a kid. For me, having Otter Pops meant summer. was. here. But like any respectable American family, we couldn't just get the normal-sized box... we got the box of 100. To an eight year old, that's an incredible sight and a challenge one must accept.
This weekend, Kevin and I made grown-up blueberry lemonades. Perhaps a new Labor Day weekend tradition? They're no Otter Pops, but this is one treat I'd like to see year after year.
What are some of your family's summer traditions?
Grown-up Blueberry Lemonade
lemonade (I used Simply Lemonade... nom!) blueberry vodka (I used blueberry Stoli) blueberries and lemons for garnish ice
Pour one shot blueberry vodka into a glass with ice. Fill the rest with lemonade. Add blueberries and lemons to make it look as goooood as it tastes. So easy, SO dangerously good.
