“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

I found this DELICIOUS sounding recipe on  I couldn’t wait to try it out.  So… I did:


Here is the recipe:


  • 1 ounce (30ml) lemonade*vodka_lemon_aloe
  • 1 ounce (30ml) aloe vera gel
  • 1.5 (45ml) your favorite vodka
  • 1/2 cup ice

Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Then strain out into a glass (I kept the ice in because I didn’t plan ahead so I did not have a chilled martini glass to sip from).



Since my photo wasn’t as nice as the one on, I had to make more.



Lemonade-Aloe-Martinis made with Forever Living Aloe Berry Nectar. The cocktail on the right also has a splash of mango nectar added.

This time I used Forever Living’s Aloe Berry Nectar which has apple and cranberry extract added for flavoring (hence the reddish color).

* A few notes about lemonade:

  1. For those of you would like to DIY, here is a simple and easy lemonade recipe.
  2. In France, limonade is similar to Sprite. I haven’t tried this yet in place of lemonade but it sounds nice for a sparkling cocktail.
