Happy Monday! Here is a cocktail to get you in the mindset for the weekend ahead. Which is not really very close as you have a work week ahead ~ but let’s just dream of all the relaxation to come when you sip on Tipsy Lemonade Iced Tea

Traditionally an iced tea & lemonade combo is known as an Arnold Palmer. My tipsy version has Grey Goose Le Citron (lemon) vodka.

Which is way more fun in my opinion.

Today a group of wonderful bloggers have come together to celebrate the baby shower for Liz from the blog The Lemon Bowl.

We all created recipes that use … guess what? Lemons!

Liz is having a baby boy…a big shout & congrats to her & her family.

She can drink this without the alcohol at her shower. I on the other hand will celebrate with the Goose…

Pinned. I’ll take a few, please! I love tea + lemonade (arnold palmers) and with vodka (Citron) even better! We could get into some trouble with these!

I’m gutted that I just found this on Monday, it would have been phenomenal this weekend where the last remnants of Summer/Autumn were still around here in London. Will definitely keep this recipe in mind though for the next party! Looks delicious!
