Vodka Spiked Lemonade with Red Rocks

We are moving to California within the next month, so we are having a bye bye party. At my parties I make a special drink to serve. So I was testing recipes (at noon) the other day :) and I found this one and I love it!!

Tropical Fruit Punch
3 cups water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
6 oz Vodka
4 thin lemon slices

Pour tropical punch into ice cube trays and freeze. Combine water, lemon juice and sugar in small pitcher. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add vodka. Refrigerate if time permits. Fill each glass with 3 or 4 red ice cubes and add the lemonade. Garnish with lemon slices.
*Note, as you can see in the pic.. I was not feeling like making homemade lemonade, so I used store bought. It tasted great.. it had vodka in it!
