A Grown-Up Version
Of A Kid's Drink

It's almost Memorial Day and that means lots of barbecues and pool parties. Here we share this fun and easy drink recipe for adults only. We took a popular kid's drink and used the idea to make these adult-style juice pouches filled with vodka lemonade.

These drinks are so easy and a great idea for your next summer gathering. Simply fill the bags with the vodka lemonade or any other drink of choice and chill until ready to serve. You can also freeze the drinks and place them in your cooler before serving. By the time you are ready to start sipping, they will have begun to defrost, leaving you with a delicious icy cold cocktail that won't get watered down.

Serves 8-10


  • 3/4 cup agave nectar (more if you prefer the drink sweeter)
  • 8 cups water
  • 4-5 fresh lemons, juiced
  • 1 cup vodka
  • Ice cubes
  • Fresh lemon and lime slices for garnish (optional)


  1. In a pitcher, add all of the ingredients, mixing very well. Pour the mixture into 8 to 10 plastic zip-closed bags. Add a few lemon and lime slices. Chill until ready to serve.
  2. You can freeze these ahead of time and remove them an hour before serving. This creates a slushy drink and also helps to keep the drink cool.

Found the bags at Hobby Lobby in the jewelry making sections for 2.99.

Angie - I purchased the bags at my local craft store. They are nothing fancy as they are actually just plastic bags used for holding beads etc. They come in sizes of 4x6 or larger in size.

You know this is a compelling idea when a guy is reading a recipe on SheKnows! Great job!

1:8 and then you add ice? It's gonna need more booze. Most drink ratios are 1:2 or 1:3. You can't even get your girlfriend drunk and take advantage of her because she's not gonna drink 6 or 7 of them because of the sugar. Neat idea, but more poison, please.

This is such a clever idea, especially for packing in coolers for a pool day. Most don't allow you to have glass, so this is really convenient.
