Sparkling Mint Lemonade

This time of year we’re looking to celebrate on the lighter side. Our refreshing sparkler is great for kids and adults alike. For the over-21 crowd, add an ounce of Anchorage Distillery Vodka to a pint of lemonade (go with a raspberry or blueberry version for another layer of flavor) for a low alcohol cocktail perfect for summertime imbibing.
