Hennessey's is known for its potent, vodka-filled lemonade. They put a twist on it with their Absolut-ly Lemonade, and managed to make another drink that really, really sneaks up on you.
It's pretty simple: fresh lemonade and Absolut vodka. The hardest part is deciding what flavor of vodka you want, but the best combo in my quest thus far has been Absolut Peach. These drinks are dangerous though because you will find yourself thinking you're just sipping on an innocent glass of peach lemonade. But by round four, you're in for a rude (although thoroughly enjoyable) awakening.
