food-ish friday...the happy camper

Last weekend I went on a weekend getaway with five other blogging friends. I was pumped to be with these women for a relaxing weekend away and even more excited that it would be my first glamping trip! Glamour camping seems right up my alley so I was more than happy to come along for the fun. And what kind of quest would I be if I should up without a special drink for the weekend. We named it the happy camper in honor or our surroundings, but it is essentially a raspberry lemonade cocktail. Refreshing and simple, a perfect summer drink. 
I made each drink separately and love the use of a mason jar for both style and function. Because the jars are marked there is no need to use anything else to measure.

The Happy Camper:

2 oz raspberries, i used semi thawed frozen berries, but fresh would be wonderful
2 oz whipped cream vodka
fill glass with ice and top with lemonade, approximately 8 oz
I used fresh made lemonade and I think this really made a difference, you can pick it up at a local store or restaurant or make it yourself.
We sipped these cocktails while taking some photos and sharing lots of laughs. What cocktails will you be sipping this summer?
I'll be back next week to show you more of our beautiful glamping site at Petit Jean State Park.
Check out post from the other glamping gals too.

Happy Friday!

Sounds yummy! I don't know about whipped cream vodka, though. ;)

My mil bought whipped cream vodka on accident so we inherited it. I have blackberries and lemonade in the fridge so I think I will be serving some version of this to our dinner guests tonight. Thanks for the inspiration!
