August 20th is National Lemonade Day. You can whip up fresh-squeezed lemonade or make a fancier lemonade recipe. Or how about some lemonade cocktails—vodka, gin, and tequila all blend well with the sassy citrus.

Here are two lemonade cocktails created by Seagram for today or weekend sipping. Seagram uses their flavored vodkas; but if you can’t find them, there are hacks. It’s easy to transition to a lemonade-flavored vodka like Absolut Citron.

There are 25 more creative lemonade recipes below, both cocktails and non-alcoholic versions.

An Arnold Palmer is a mix of lemonade and iced tea (here’s more about it).

Seagram’s turned it into a cocktail with their Sweet Tea Vodka (photo #1). We happened to have Absolut Citron on hand instead and also hacked the recipe by using an actual Arnold Palmer (50:50 iced tea and lemonade) instead of straight lemonade.
Ingredients Per Drink

  • 2 ounces Seagram’s Sweet Tea Arnold Palmer Vodka or lemon vodka
  • 4 ounces lemonade or Arnold Palmer half lemonade, half tea)
  • Garnish: Fresh mint, lemon wedges

    1. COMBINE the vodka and lemonade or Arnold Palmer over ice in a highball glass.

    2. STIR, then garnish with mint and lemon.

    Seagram’s makes watermelon vodka, but again, we substituted Absolut Citron and pressed watermelon juice.

    The “salted” component is a rim of Tajín Seasoning, a popular flavored salt that includes cayenne and lime. It’s a great addition to your spice shelf: It can be used on just about anything, savory or sweet.
    Ingredients Per Drink

  • 2 ounces of Seagram’s Watermelon Vodka or lemon vodka
  • 2 ounces lemonade
  • 2 ounces watermelon juice
  • 1 ounce club soda
  • Tajín salt rim
  • Garnish: watermelon wedge

    1. RIM the glass with Tajín (moisten the rim and twist in a saucer or small plate of seasoning).

    2. PRESS cubes of watermelon to create juice.

    3. ADD the juice, lemonade, and vodka to a highball glass. Stir and top with club soda.

    4. GARNISH with a watermelon wedge.
