Lemonade Base

4 cups cold water

14 oz lemon juice

1/4 cup sugar

Stir well & add ice to chill

This lemonade base is sour, and is meant to be sour to balance out the sugary sweetness from the cherry juice. If you use fresh cherry juice instead of maraschino cherry juice feel free to add sugar to taste. 

We used fresh squeezed lemon juice, which can be a lot of fun for kids that are a little older, but the store bought stuff will work as well

Mommy I’m Thirsty

Add ice to glass

2 oz maraschino cherry juice

Fill with lemonade base

Garnish and enjoy!

This version is non-alcoholic and is great for the mom-to-be who may be a suffering from morning sickness. Cut back on the maraschino cherry juice or add plain cherry juice to reduce the sweetness and make the drink a little more sour. When I was pregnant suffering from morning sickness sour candies and drinks were the only thing that made it bearable.

This version is also perfect to share with the little ones!

Mommy Needs A Drink

Add ice to glass

2 oz maraschino cherry juice

2 oz Valentine Vodka

Fill with lemonade base

Garnish and Enjoy!

After the kids go to bed a cocktail can taste really good. This one includes our favorite local vodka, but this will also work with your favorite liquor as well. I especially recommend gin for a delicious summer drink or some bourbon for more of an Arnold Palmer taste.

We’ve styled Belly Up Bourbon two ways with strawberry, one if spring has come to you, and one if you’re still waiting.

This fun drink is perfect if you don’t have fresh strawberries available yet. We made some strawberries and creme ice cubes using Faygo Creme Soda, Faygo Red Pop, and frozen strawberries in our favorite ice cube tray. Keep in mind that the carbonation may cause geysers of creme soda!

Motor City Gas Whiskey opened three years ago in Royal Oak Michigan on St. Patrick’s Day. Terry and Jenn are naturally whiskey lovers, but I am a vodka girl at heart. Rich changed my mind and cultivated a love of whiskey in me with his phenomenal cocktails. They serve a seasonal menu that includes fresh ingredients, often prepared in front of you as you order. Their whiskey offerings have continued to grow each year, including basics like rye and bourbon, as well as innovations like apple pie moonshine and collaborations with local breweries.
