Earlier this spring, a friend brought this delightful and potent drink to a girls’ night, and when I was deciding on a drink for a Memorial Day cookout, Ellen’s gin-champagne lemonade was a no-brainer.  It’s perfect for a hot summer evening, and it’s super-easy to make.  It’s also super-strong: we won’t judge if you dilute yours with ice or water!

Ellen’s Gin-Champagne Lemonade

1/2 cup lemonade concentrate, thawed

1 cup gin

2 2/3 cups champagne

Lemon for garnish

Mix the lemonade concentrate with the gin and chill.  Before serving, mix in champagne.  Garnish with lemon slices.

(The pitcher above is holding a double-batch.)
