Torch Lake Lemonade

Bottoms Up
By Todd VanSickle | July 13, 2019

There is one problem with Torch Lake during the summer: You never want to leave. The lake’s beautiful blue waters are a main attraction for visitors and residents alike. A good way to end a day of fun on the water is with a Torch Lake Lemonade on the deck at Dockside bar and grill on the water’s edge of Torch Lake and Clam River. Sweet and potent yet conjuring memories of childhood, this cocktail is spiked with Stoli Razberi, mixed with frozen lemonade, and pairs perfectly with a sunset and shared memories among friends. $8.79. Call ahead to reserve a spot on the bustling deck. Open 11am–11pm seven days a week at 6340 Old Torch Lake Dr., Bellaire. (231) 377-7777.
