  1. Sounds delicious! I have got to give this a shot! (haw haw) But seriously, I love that you used lemonade in a cocktail. Great idea.

  2. I love Chambord and this cocktail sounds fabulous with a lemonade! I think I'll make one this weekend!

  3. A sweet-tart beverage is always welcome! This sounds delicious!
