Yukka Recipe - Delicious Summer Lemon-Lime Vodka Drink - Must Try!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about 5 things I love to do in the summer. I mentioned Yukka and I got a few comments asking what it is so here you go.

*******a special thanks to Ashley, who introduced me to yukka,
and Jamie,who is pretty much the yukka master :)

about 6 lemons
about 9 limes (if they are small)
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of vodka
lots of ice

1. First you need a big jar with a tight lid, and a blanket or beach towel.

2. Cut the limes and lemons in slices, like this:

3. Put all ingredients in the jar, ice last. 4. Roll up the jar in the blanket, and shake back and forth, until jar is icy and the lemons and limes are crushed (15-20 probably). Have extra ice to add more to the jar about half way through. And if you want to drink some, you need to take a turn shaking!

5. Drink straight out of the jar!

But beware, it's very tasty and you are going to get thirsty after that shaking, so things could get a little crazy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm so glad to have found yours. I can already tell I'm going to love it! I don't know what's more fun about that drink - making it or drinking it.

Who am I kidding - of course it's more fun to drink it. :)
