A dear friend of me and my husband shared this recipe with us. Marilyn, may she rest in peace, had a ranch that we hunted in Bandera, TX. She had all kinds of drinks that you had to sip because they were sooooooooooo good you easily could become too intoxicated to enjoy! LOL So, that being said I hope all who try will enjoy as we do in these HOT Texas summers.

    glass gallon jar with lid

    lemons cut in half

How to Make Yukka Flats


  1. Juice your lemons in the jar and drop in 3 of the lemons after they have been juiced. Add 1 cup of sugar and 1 quart of good Vodka (I like Absolut). Now, fill the jar with ice and put the lid on tight.
  2. Wrap a bath towel all around the jar to enclose it. Now comes the fun part! Shake the jar until the towel sticks to it. This is where your family or friends that will share this sneaky drink can have a part in it's making.

    When the towel sticks to the jar it is ready. Unwrap the jar and serve up this wonderfully sneaky, spiked lemonade affectionately labeled "Yukka Flats". Enjoy!
