About the Rooftop Lemonade

The Rooftop Lemonade is a light and crisp summer cocktail that will refresh your taste buds. This spiked lemonade is a combo of sweet and sour that will taste even better on a rooftop on a hot summer day. This drink goes by many names and its simple recipe is easy to replicate.

Empire Tip: Too bitter? Peel the cucumber before you slice it. Also, try a small orange wheel inside the drink to mask the taste of alcohol if it’s too strong.
