Frosted Vodka Pineapple Lemonade is a delicious dessert cocktail that is so easy to make! Based off of the popular Chik-Fil-A frosted lemonade made with a tropical twist and a shot or two of vodka.
My favorite cocktails are always the pineapple variety and with the popularity of my Pineapple Vodka Lemonade, I knew this Frosted version was going to be even better. Basically, it's like a boozy lemon milkshake and it's crazy- good! For a simple cocktail, this easy Vodka Lemonade is always a crowd favorite.
