Be ready for summer with this bright and refreshing Whiskey Lemonade. So simple to stir together and perfect for entertaining or just sipping yourself while enjoying the sun.
I chose to use frozen lemonade concentrate in this recipe for two reasons. The first was for convenience and the second to control the strength and concentration of the lemonade. I first mixed the lemonade according to the can directions and felt that it lacked flavour, sweetness and brightness. I then changed to mixing the cocktail using the concentrate itself in frozen form. This allowed me to control how lemony and sweet I wanted the drink. Using it frozen also ensured a cold drink. One standard 295ml tin of frozen lemonade concentrate will yield 4.75 drinks. If I was serving at a party, I would mix the concentrate with the appropriate amount of water which is 700ml or just over 2.75 cups. Once mixed, you can keep it chilled and mix with your whiskey of choice as needed. However you choose to mix it, it’s a very simple cocktail that’s perfect for a hot sunny day. Enjoy!
As I believe with any good cocktail, it’s important to use good quality water. Either filtered or bottled is recommended as it eliminates the variance of everyone’s water, whether it be good or bad.
