Easy Summertime Drink for Lemon Lovers!

Edited lemon photo

Try Mary Ellen’s fabulous Lemon Drop Fizz! One of the best lemonade drinks you’ll ever have!!

You will need:
Highball glass
Ice cubes
Skyy Citrus Vodka (I keep mine in the freezer!!!)
Your favorite powdered lemonade mix
(I like Country Time)
Whole fresh lemon
Chilled plain seltzer
Fresh mint for garnish
For each drink:
Using the scoop that comes in the lemonade mix, put a little less than one scoop in the glass. Pour in one shot of frozen vodka. Cut one wedge of lemon, squeeze into glass and put wedge in glass. Stir until powder and vodka are blended. An iced tea spoon works great! Fill glass about 3/4 full with seltzer. Give it another quick stir. Add ice cubes and garnish with a lemon slice and fresh mint.

Want to make your Memorial Day memorable? Here’s a chicken recipe that’s both memorable and mouthwatering!

Marvelous Marinated Chicken Breasts


6 small chicken breasts, boneless

3 med garlic cloves, crushed

1 ½ tsp salt

½ cup brown sugar

3 T grainy mustard

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Juice of 1 lime

Juice of ½ large lemon

6 T olive oil

Black pepper to taste

This recipe is easily doubled or tripled!


Pound the chicken breasts so they are as even as possible. To save time, you can buy 6 large really good quality chicken cutlets that have already been pounded out.

Note: We like Stop & Shop’s Nature’s Promise individually sealed chicken breasts; however, the pieces are smaller, so you might substitute two of these pieces for one larger breast or cutlet. You’d still want to pound these out before marinating.

Put chicken pieces into large ziplock bag.

Whisk all the other ingredients together in a bowl and pour over chicken. Seal bag and make sure all chicken pieces are thoroughly coated with marinade.

Marinate overnight or at least for several hours. If possible, flip the bag a few times while marinating.  Remove bag from fridge and let chicken come to room temperature before grilling.

Grill on charcoal or gas grill approximately 4 minutes per side. DO NOT OVERCOOK… I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH!! The goal here is tender chicken.

Serving options: Boil down the remaining marinade until it is reduced by half and drizzle over grilled chicken. Suggested sides: grilled baby potatoes and asparagus.

These chicken breasts are great as leftovers! Just cut into strips and serve on a salad.
