Currently my favorite cocktail is a homemade whiskey lemonade. The first time I made one I was just mixing available ingredients for a quick, low sugar cocktail. And I accidently fell in love.
This cocktail is everything I love: simple, tart and lightly sweet with just the right amount of booziness. Emma says it reminds her of a giant sidecar.
First you’ll need lots of lemons. I use two lemons for each medium sized drink. You gotta make fresh lemon juice too. I love juicing citrus by hand. It’s strangely satisfying.
Whisky Lemonade with Honey. Serves one.
2 tablespoons whiskey (I like Maker’s Mark)
juice of two fresh lemons
honey simple syrup
sweetened lime juice
In a medium size glass, combine 2 tablespoons whiskey, juice of two fresh lemons, ice then fill the rest of the glass with club soda.
Add honey simple syrup to taste. If you’re not a big fan of honey use regular simple syrup. Add a splash of sweetened lime juice and garnish with a fresh lemon.
Note: If you’ve never made your own simple syrups I shared how here. These syrups are great for anything from coffees and tea to cocktails!
Yummy!!Lemon and honey,this just sounds great!
Need to try this one!
This will be my new summer time adult beverage. The end 😉
Hm! This one seem very delicious!! 😀
Cannot wait for it to be a bit more spring like here so that I can give it a go. I don’t think even that concoction could make today feel bright and sunny!
Today is more of a hot chocolate and brandy kinda day.
I’m too young to drink, but these pictures are gorgeous!
I made this tonight and it was delish! I didn’t want to make the honey simple syrup so just poured simple syrup and honey in it. Don’t so this, the honey hardens and doesn’t absorb into the drink. But all in all, very good drink. Thank you Elsie!
The man loves all your drinks. Just saying ^_^
i need to try this!
Just made it.it is so refreshing.it puts you right in the mood for spring cocktail parties <3 thanks for the recipe
This sounds great! Can you tell me where you´ve bought these beautiful glasses?:)
I’m thirsty 🙂
Whiskey is my favorite (especially maker’s mark!) and I loveee sidecars… can’t wait to try this soon!
This is brilliant! Can’t wait for summer!
I love that you posted spiked lemonade on a snow day! That looks so delicious, can’t wait to try it. I pinned it for ya too!
I just read a book about the lemon vertue and it is incredible what it does to us, clean the inside and shine the outside. This lemonade seems yummie, I am counting on it for my first balcony party (when spring comes!)
sounds like my dream.
This sounds amazing and perfect for spring/summertime 🙂
I just made something similar that turned out to be my new favorite cocktail! It’s less of a lemonade/more of a stiff drink: bourbon, lavender simple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and cynar.
