By the end of a busy week a nice little libation is just what the doctor mama ordered. Here are two of my favorites…Vodka Lemonade Slush (if you have time to pre-make this earlier in the week) or Pinapple-Cran Cocktail (if you need a quick fix).

VODKA LEMONADE SLUSH

INGREDIENTS
12 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
12 oz vodka
24 oz cold water
zest from 1 lemon
Lemon slices to garnish, if desired

INSTRUCTIONS
In a large bowl combine lemonade concentrate, vodka, water and lemon zest. Stir together until well combined. Pour lemonade mixture into a shallow freezer-safe pan. Freeze mixture for at least 8 hours or overnight, stirring once halfway through freezing.
To serve, fluff ice crystals with a fork and spoon into glasses for serving. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired. (spotted on www.FoodieMisadventures.com)
