Give your lemonade bar an adult twist with Prairie Organic Spirits, a handcrafted line of organic gin and vodka, meticulously created and distilled to taste. These cocktails will be sure to impress guests:

Pretty in Pink Lemonade

8 cups (two liters) cold seltzer
4 cups fresh lemon juice
¼ cup grenadine syrup
2 lemons, sliced
Ice, as needed

Here Comes the Lime


3 cups Prairie Organic Vodka
2 cups simple syrup (2 cups sugar and 2 cups water, cooked until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.)
8 cups (two liters) cold seltzer water
3 cups lime juice
2 limes, sliced
Ice, as needed
6 cups fresh or frozen sweet black cherries (optional)

Directions: Add Prairie Organic Vodka, simple syrup and lime juice to dispenser. Add seltzer and lime slices, and stir gently to combine ingredients. Top with ice. To make cherry limeade, add 6 cups of fresh or frozen sweet black cherries to simple syrup while cooking.

The Display:


While the drinks may speak for themselves, below are a few ideas for pulling together a beautiful table to present your tasty drinks:

o Display your cocktails in glass beverage dispensers, complete with a label so guests can see what they’re getting before they sip. To make beverage pouring as simple as possible, place your dispensers on top of simple glass cake stands to elevate your drinks without taking away from their colorful splendor.


o Add to the DIY feel of your table by lining it with colorful Mason jars and striped paper straws for the guests to drink from. We suggest placing chalkboard labels on the glasses and laying out chalk for guests to use – with labeled glasses, no one will drink from the wrong cup again!
