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)
  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.
