Nothing says summer like lemonade, and the Lemon Vodka from Deep Eddy Distillery offers the perfect way to enjoy this summer staple in a refreshing adult cocktail!

An Austin original, celebrating the laid back Austin lifestyle, Deep Eddy Vodka is handcrafted in small batches in the Deep Eddy Distillery in Dripping Springs. Made with real lemons from California, not a flavoring agent, Deep Eddy Lemon is the perfect mix of sweet and tart.

The fastest growing vodka in the United States, Deep Eddy breathes fresh air into the vodka category while supporting local communities in the true spirit of Austin. I love the classic Americana look of all the labels – each different flavor is represented by a different pin-up girl, or Betty.

Deep Eddy Lemon joined four other vodkas in the lineup, including Deep Eddy Cranberry, Deep Eddy Ruby Red, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea and Deep Eddy Vodka. Some of the most popular cocktails that can be created using Deep Eddy Lemon include Lemon Splash (a low-calorie drink), High Dive Cosmo and Deep Shandy.

I like my Deep Eddy Lemon over the rocks with a splash of water, but if you want to be a little fancier, here’s one to try:
