Dinner At Joy The Baker’s House!

Whiskey Lemonade with Mint!Whiskey Lemonade with Mint!Last weekend one of our favorite bloggers, Joy The Baker, invited us over for dinner. (Insert fan girl screams here… We love her!) We brought supplies to make a version of our whiskey lemonade, this time with mint simple syrup, fresh mint and an edible flower just because it's pretty.

  • Hi Kim! Here’s our whiskey lemonade recipe- https://abeautifulmess.com/2013/02/whiskey-lemonade-with-honey.html the mint version is the same, but you use mint when making the simple syrup (5+ pieces) and then add fresh mint to the drink!

  • Everything looked so lovely. I’d luv to make the whiskey lemonade but couldn’t find the recipe anywhere. Is there any way I could get the regular and the mint whiskey lemonade recipes? Thank you in advance if I can, and I understnd if I can’t.

  • Wow, I’m extremely jealous. I would have loved to be at that backyard party. It looks stunning. I’ve just recently started following you and Joy, and it hurts my heart that I’ve been missing out for so long. Some of the best voices out there.
