Cocktail hour was made for the summer! I’m recommending you start your week right with your own private happy hour. And, I have a just the cocktail to “launch” you into the evening.

This cocktail uses Rocket Vodka, a California vodka handcrafted from 100% fresh-pressed apples and fresh Sierra Nevada mountain water. It’s naturally gluten-free and no added sugar- just apples. Enjoy, along with the sounds of crickets and the twilight light.




  1. In a shaker over ice combine all ingredients.
  2. Stir
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon rind.
  4. Get ready for lift-off! 🙂
