We have all heard the saying; “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” but, why settle? Adding spirits, mint, and natural vanilla flavor profiles help elevate this American classic well beyond the ordinary. This original cocktail was Frank's creation after a mentally challenging day. We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages

"Our happiness is certainly mixed in with the tragedies of life. You have to find the lemonade. You have to find the silver lining in the middle of everything that happens in life."
