Lemonade Beer with Cherry Rum

Lemonade Beer with cherry rum: easy and refreshing! summer cocktails anyone?

Say what??? You heard me correctly. I wasn’t a believer either at first. I mean seriously, mix lemonade with beer? But, just because I’m not a believer doesn’t mean I won’t try something. At least once.

Lemonade Beer with cherry rum: easy and refreshing! summer cocktails anyone?

As you can see my recipe made a lot of this lovely beverage. Hubby and I enjoyed this immensely over the weekend while working in the yard. He isn’t a “girly” drink kind of guy either, and he thought this was very tasty and refreshing.

We have friends (Hi Greg and Kari) who always have the best drink recipes. I mean, the BEST. Their sangria recipes is to DIE for, but I’m not allowed to share it. I mean, the recipe. I was kindly given the recipe when we moved away from them as a gift, with strict orders to keep it quiet. So you won’t get that recipe from me, but enjoy this lemonade beer. Cause it’s good. And I said so. And it’s summer. Bottoms up!

  1. Looks delicious Aimee.

    People who refuse to share recipes make me go HULK SMASH! I don’t get it…what is there to lose by sharing a great recipe? I’ll just be over here in the corner with my crappy sangria pouting. πŸ˜›

  2. Ali- you crack me up! I can share the drink, not the recipe, so come on over and have some sangria πŸ™‚

  3. I’m in love with this! I just had lemonade beer this past weekend (the store bought) and it was good – this sounds fabulous!

  4. Mo- (can I call you that?) It’s easy to make and probably cheaper too πŸ™‚

  5. Oh yeah…new follower from It’s a Keeper!

  6. We have to keep the recipe secret so we have something special to serve our friends when they come over! We spent a whole summer perfecting the recipe (before kids) so we are proud! And we did give Aimee the recipe as a going away present since she’d be all the way in Ohio….that’s something!
    Thanks for the new recipe – totally want to try this – maybe this weekend!

  7. Let me know if you try the lemonade beer Kari- it is so good. If you like more of a kick, add more rum.

    If you ever want to share your sangria recipe, you just holla’, and you can be a guest writer πŸ™‚
    Hope to see you soon!!

  8. Lemonade BEER?! Makin’ it ASAP! πŸ˜€

  9. .

  10. If this tastes anything like Leunkugals (sp?) summer ale, it is probably awesome!

  11. Oh this looks so good! I’ll have to try it! Found you at the Thirsty Thursday’s blog hop and am glad I did! Am a happy new follower :).


  12. Sarah, it’s great!
    Jeff- no idea, never tried it. But it is awesome!
    Marlee- thanks for following, so glad you are here!

  13. this absolutely sounds fantastic and refreshing. i would definitely try this out after my 30 day diet.. i am down!

  14. I can’t wait to try this! Would cherry vodka work just as well do you think? If so then I can make some up right now πŸ˜‰

    I found you from the blog hop and I now follow you via GFC. I would love it if you would follow me back πŸ™‚



  15. Aimee – I made it today for Father’s Day and we loved it – so did Greg’s parents. And I hate beer – was light and refreshing – very tasty! And easy to keep the ingredients on hand! Thanks!

  16. Kari- I’m glad you liked it! Next time I make it (later this week), I plan on adding some fruit to it…like marachino cherries and strawberries.

  17. Wow does this sound fantastic. Just in time for 4th of July. Thanks for sharing this one.

  18. Hmmm. I just drank a really lemony beer the other day and thought it was okay. This is going even farther. I’ll have to give it a try, especially since I happen to have one of those little bitty bottles of Bacardi Cherry Rum sitting around.

  19. I love this. It’s just like my Summer Beer I posted a few weeks back – except yours is cherry flavored. YUMMY!

  20. Wow, that sounds really refreshing and delicious! It’s making me thirsty just reading about it. Definitely going to have to make a pitcher or two this summer!

    Sharing your post over on my Facebook page!

    I think that if you insist on having a recipe that you won’t share that you should keep it a secret. Meaning don’t rub it in that you have a ‘perfect’ recipe that no one else can have. It’s like you are trying to have a “cool kids” club and only 3 people are getting in. Don’t talk about it if you really insist on being that way!

    Hi Aimee!
    I love all your recipes. I found you thru Kari – went to High school with her. This lemonade beer is great. I doubled the rum because I wanted more cherry taste. Thanks for finding me my new favorite drink! πŸ™‚

  23. Marcy-
    Glad you enjoy it! We love it here too. Thanks for stopping by!

  24. I forgot and bought plain rum instead of cherry. Do you think it would work to just add a splash of Grenadine instead? Thanks!

  25. I SO WANT THIS RIGHT NOW. It’s only 8 am here, yeah, but it’s also crawling up to 90 DEGREES already and you can’t blame me for wanting something as delicious and refreshing as this! Yum!

    Hello there!!

    I really don’t like rum. Is there anything I could substitute? A flavour of vodka perhaps? I have some pomegranate vodka I haven’t opened yet. I suppose it’s worth a try! Thanks. H.
