Today I am sharing a refreshing and summertime twist on your typical vodka martini. I have added refreshing and healthy aloe juice in addition to lemonade. The lemonade screams summer and marries with the vodka so well.
In Mexico, I have noticed that almost every single corner store has a bottle or two of aloe juice in their cooler so I bought a couple and started mixing. People here drink it as a healthy supplement and as a juice. I know that aloe juice has health benefits so why not add a healthy dose to a cocktail. So, I experimented a little and found that lemonade really made this martini a summertime treat. Make your booze a little healthy by adding some aloe juice and create your own special summertime treat!
