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. :)
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!Enjoy this refreshing, citrus cocktail! xo. Elsie
