A tall glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade is practically synonymous with summer. Add a little vodka and you have yourself a refreshing cocktail. For your wedding, you should stay away from the bottled alcoholic lemonades and make your own fresh version, instead.

Start with some homemade lemonade made from fresh-squeezed lemons and add sugar to cut the tart flavor. Lemonade is very versatile, so from there you can get creative, adding vodka or gin, seltzer water, orange juice, triple sec, amaretto, peach liqueur, Crème de Menthe, or any other various flavorful libations. Before the big day, try out some different combinations until you find one you love.
