The Bootlegger Cocktail


A delicious, citrus drink perfect for a hot summer day.

A favorite drink in our great state for decades on end—the bootlegger cocktail was supposedly created at a country club during the prohibition. No matter where it was invented, this minty drink is truly a Minnesota staple.

  • 1 can frozen limeade
  • 1 can frozen lemonade
  • 2 bunches mint
  • ¼ cup simple syrup
  • 8 oz. vodka
  • Water
  • Club soda

Combine lemonade, limeade and chopped mint in a blender and puree. Add simple syrup and puree. Fill the blender with water so it is three quarters of the way full. Fill a tall glass with ice and add 2 parts vodka, 3 parts bootleg mix and 2 parts club soda. Garnish with mint and serve!
