Shot of Gold | Sparkling Lemonade Recipe

An easy to sip sparkling lemonade recipe made with champagne or sparkling grape juice

The luck of the Irish brought me to a group of incredibly creative and talented bloggers who always inspire. While our styles vary, our love for cocktails do not. We have teamed up to bring you an array of St. Patrick’s Day cocktails to help you celebrate in great taste. I don’t drink a lot of hard alcohol, so my cocktail contribution is an easy sip perfect for day drinking like showers, birthdays, brunches and of course, St. Patty’s day. I blended champagne, simple syrup and lemon juice to make a refreshing Sparkling Lemonade aka Shot of Gold.
