Today, July 6th, is National Fried Chicken Day! YAHOO! I know I love fried chicken just as much as the next guy, so we’re naturally having a cocktail today for the Friday 5 O’Cocktail that will pair really well with fried chicken — a Pink Lemonade Cocktail!

This was originally published in Southern Living magazine and it really seems like it would be the most refreshing drink. I am told that even though the beer/lemonade combination sounds strange, don’t let it fool you – it is delicious! Just make sure you use a pale/light beer so that flavor doesn’t come through too strong and you are cookin’ with gas!
