"I found this delicious beverage recipe while participating at in a food tag game at another recipe site a while back. The recipe author is Nif and she writes "This yummy and easy drink hits the spot during strawberry season! Very easy to adjust if you like more or less lemony sourness. This is more on the sour side because that's what I like! I see no reason to avoid adding a splash of vodka for that extra *punch*! Enjoy!""
