Nerds Gotta Drink: America’s Lemonade

Fangirls, I miss EPCoT. I miss Walt Disney World, I miss my friends, I miss being elsewhere. Sadly, I don’t know when I’m going to see my home park again, or my Ohana. I have plans for moving out, but who knows. The one thing I am definitely sure of is my love for EPCoT. One of the things I finally got to experience while I was in EPCoT last was drinks around the world. Sadly, I can’t remember them all, but one that I loved above (almost) all others, was the lemonade at the American Pavilion.

Since I miss my home away from home so much, what better way to treat my homesickness with some drinks reminiscent of those I had while drinking around the world? I beelined for the Lemonade first, because I remember it being one of my absolute favorites. It was a spiked lemonade slushy; good stuff for that Florida heat, and very tasty. So I tried it out at home.

All I used was some homemade lemonade, and bourbon. I know it doesn’t sound super appealing, but you’re wrong. It’s amazing. I remember my Ohana saying that we should skip America because we live there, and all they’d have is beer. Wrong, and also wrong. Sure, they had American beer, but they also had this bourbon lemonade slushy that I’m clearly not over yet.

So once you’ve got your lemonade and bourbon, stick your lemonade in the freezer for a couple hours. Once it’s of a slushy-esque consistency, drop the bourbon in, mix, and drink that sucker. It definitely has a bit of a kick, and the alcohol is more obvious than it was with the Firewhiskey I made the other day, but holy guacamole is it tasty.

I think this drink is a nice way to reminisce about Summer, and drinking around the world. It’s fun, and keeps the homesickness at bay. Drink up, Fangirls.
