Gray days are coming, as evidenced by the snow last weekend, but Cavanaugh’s Grille in Fairview Township is offering a bright spot in all the gloom.

Very bright. Electric Lemonade has a hue hard to ignore.

“Everyone loves lemonade, so we wanted a drink that tasted like it,” bartender Deb Prelewicz said. “It couldn’t be a normal color though, so we looked to the Blue Curacao to add a twist.”

Curacao is orange-flavored liquor distilled from dried bitter-orange peel. It can be blue, green or clear, as in “white” Curacao.

This bright-blue drink also consists of equal parts triple sec, sour mix and 7-Up.

Another take on Electric Lemonade is Lynchburg Lemonade, which follows the same recipe but subs whiskey for Blue Curacao. The garnish also includes cherries with the lemon slice.
