Luscious Thyme Mint Lemonade Cocktail

Just days ago I posted a recipe and tips for a fun mason jar picnic salad. This Thyme- Mint Lemonade is the perfect addition to the party. It's as simple as adding fresh herbs to lemonade and letting it steep for a day.

With summer picnics come summer heat bringing cause for a crucial, yet often overlooked imperative step in summer cocktails - flavored ice cubes! I've said this before, but it's worth repeating - do not let your drinks get watered down by traditional ice cubes. Freeze lemonade or frozen lime concentrate into cubes and use those; at the very least, flavor the water ice cubes with a squeeze of fresh lemon before freezing. Your drink will thank you for it.

While super tasty as a virgin drink, do sexy it up with a shot of vodka ... then see how fun frisbee really can be. It's another stellar Fat and Happy cocktail for your summer enjoyment.

Tips and Techniques:  Making lemonade from scratch (lemons, sugar and water) is the best; but reach for a crystal light mix for ease.
