Blue Vodka Lemonade

Blue Vodka Lemonade | Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts #recipe

Are you a fan of Arrested Development?  We LOVE that show!  We watched all the episodes back in the day, we own the whole set on DVD, and are in the process of re-watching them all right now.  Do you know why?  Because a new season is coming out on Netflix!!  The new season starts on Sunday May 26th, and I am so excited!

Turns out, I am not the only food blogger excited about the new season either.  Brandy and Rebecca got a group of us together for this special event.  Today we are all sharing food inspired by some of our favorite Arrested Development episodes.  This goes way beyond just bananas and cornballs, so get excited!  Plus, check out this awesome poster that Brandy’s brother put together for us!

If I could have found away to incorporate “never-nude” or Mr. Manager into a food post I would have.  Instead I went with something blue.  My husband and I love the episode where Tobias is trying to be a part of the Blue Man group.  We laughed so hard when we watched it.  We aren’t quite to that episode yet while re-watching them, but I can’t wait to see it again.

This Blue Vodka Lemonade is super simple, and barely a recipe.  I used a blue liquor, really any kind will do, and mixed it with lemonade.  For a deep blue color you can add a drop or two of blue food coloring.  These would be great for a party, you can just make a big pitcher and have them ready in the fridge.   Have a glass ready on Sunday night so you can watch the new season of Arrested Development!

  1. Hahaha. This is awesome! I don’t know what you’re talking about, this is totally a recipe. And an amazing one! Such a lovely blue. :)

  2. I’m afraid I just blue myself on what was supposed to be a dry run and now I hav e a bit of a mess on my hands!

    There has GOT to be a better way to say that.

  3. Seriously this is the best blog party ever. I’d drink to that!

  4. I think I’m the only person who has never watched Arrested Development – either way, this looks awesome!

  5. True story: a few days ago it was so hot in Sacramento that my denim shorts appeared to be grafted to my body. I thought I was going to be a nevernude forever! Spoiler alert: I will not be a nevernude forever. However, I will always love Tobias. And this lemonade!

  6. Oh I love the blue!! Such a fun blog party too!

  7. How did you know that blue is my favorite color :) Not only that it sounds so refreshing and delish!

  8. Fun drink, love the color and those coordinating straws!

  9. Ha! How super fun! I love the Arrested-Development theme! Tell me someone is making something banana flavored… These cocktails look amazing, Erin! So smooth and summery…

  10. I have not yet seen that show, looks like I need to add it to my list! This lemonade sounds so perfect right now!

  11. Love this & CANNOT WAIT UNTIL tomorrow!!!! AD is huge at our house!

  12. Have never seen the show but could certainly go for one of these divine cocktails you made. Enjoy the show and the long holiday weekend!

  13. We love Arrested Devlopment, too. I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels the need to rewatch every episode before the new ones. It’s been so fun. I’ll definitely have a blue cocktail and raise my glass to Tobias Funke.

  14. Looks like the perfect end to this Saturday. Yummmmy!

  15. I gotta start watching A.D. My husband tells me it is hilarious! Cheers to you, Erin!

    The matching straws are so much fun with this very summery blue drink. now how I never caught an Arrested Development episode has me stumped since it has so many of my favorite actors in it…:)

  17. Tobias would just ADORE this drink.

  18. I love blue drinks in the summer. I cannot explain it!

  19. *Love* Arrested Development!! “I just blue myself!” :D
    Seriously, this blue vodka is brilliant!

  20. Never seen the show, but have been tempted to start with so much buzz about its return. Making a few of these while watching cant hurt either. Cheers!
