Light City Blue

For those who won’t make it Baltimore for Light City this year, we’re sharing two cocktail recipes you can make and enjoy at home.

Light City Blue Lagoon is an easy and delicious mix of 1 oz Blue  Curacao, 1 1/2 oz Vodka, and 1 oz Lemonade. Add ice, and enjoy!

Light City Cocktail

The Light City 2018 Official Cocktail is the “Night Thyme” and is inspired by the bright lights shining on the water during Light City:

1 ½ jigger LeMonade’s Citrus Thyme Shrub *
1 jigger fresh Orange Juice
1 jigger your favorite Rye whiskey
Good squeeze of fresh lemon
Soda water
Fruit or thyme sprig, optional garnish

Shake together Citrus Thyme Shrub, orange juice, rye and lemon juice. Pour over ice and top with soda water.  Stir and serve, garnish if desired. Cheers!
