An adult lemonade stand is serving up boozy treats in Midtown this summer

Will Gleason

Forget lemons. This restaurant is making lemonade out of vodka.

Starting tomorrow, and continuing every Friday all summer long, Pergola (36 W 28th St) is putting a boozy twist on a childhood classic. An “adult lemonade stand” is being set up at the venue, just behind a retractable garage door façade, to entice passersby with refreshing, chilled treats. 

From 11am to 8pm on Fridays, you’ll be able to swing by the stand and grab a FrutaPOP “Petal Pop” made with Lemonade, Tito’s Vodka, Elderflower, and Edible Flowers. (So, no. This is obviously not the sugar-and-water lemonade of your youth.) In addition to the pops, the stand will also be selling Chandon 187ml bottles and Wolffer Estate Cider No.139.

But just a head’s up, the tart treats cost $8 each. So you probably won’t be able to get away with just throwing a quarter in a glass jar.
