Whiskey Lemonade


While I’m mostly a wine girl, I do enjoy a good cocktail now and again, and I have a feeling these Whiskey Lemonades will be making the rotation regularly this spring and summer. The drink was quick to whip up and a great combination of tart lemon and sweet honey.

Whiskey Lemonade (makes one drink)
1 shot of whiskey (I used Maker’s Mark)
½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
Lime bitters
Honey simple syrup (to make, boil equal parts honey and water until honey is disolved)
Lime sparkling water (or club soda)
Ice
  1. Add whiskey and lemon juice to a glass and fill with ice.
  2. Add a few dashes of lime bitters and a couple teaspoons of honey simple syrup, both to taste.
  3. Fill to top with sparkling water.
  4. Stir, garnish with a lemon slice, and enjoy.
