This past weekend we had a garage sale party:

The second customer of the day came SPECIFICALLY for the nipple clamps. It was a great moment in garage sale history.

And at said garage sale party, I served Electric Lemonade, from the newest issue of Bust Magazine.

And it was a HIT.

Some said they liked it better than mojitos.

Some said they liked it better than sex.

Some said they liked it better than mojitos + sex with your mom + $1000.

None of the people who said this were me, mostly because I was too busy drinking them to say anything really.

I didn't take a picture, so the following picture is a simulation of Electric Lemonade:

Please note: Your Electric Lemonade will not shoot neon blue bolts of electricity as featured in the picture above. And the neon blue bolts of lightning that it DOESN'T shoot won't make a shooting noise that sounds like PEW! PEW! (Though if you drink enough of these, it might start to look and sound like it's doing both these things.)

Here's the off-the-top-of-my-head recipe. Obviously you can tweak measurements to taste.

  • Vodka

  • Lemonade (homemade or storebought--whatevs)

  • Ginger ale

  • Fresh mint

  • Limes

  • Ice


Throw ice in a glass. Fill the glass about 1/3 full with vodka. Fill the remaining 2/3 with lemonade (but leave about an inch of room at the top for ginger ale). Top off with your ginger ale. Toss in a few sprigs of mint and some slices of lime. Swirl. And: PEW PEW PEW!
