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.

      Recipe Notes

      -Using filtered or bottled water can make a huge difference.  Everyone's tap water is different and some not the best for drinking as they are loaded with chlorine, sulfur etc.  By using good water ensures a good tasting drink.

      - One 295ml Minute Maid frozen lemonade will yield 4.75 cocktails.

      Holiday Punch

      Holiday Punch

      This refreshing all-purpose beverage gets named Holiday Punch for this time of year, but truthfully, it’s wonderful anytime you have a gathering. It takes no time at all to mix together and has a festive flair with the addition of cranberries. 

      It’s a game changer really! Why? Because it’s also very, very good with vodka or white rum.  So those who want to live it up a little can, while non-drinkers, designated drivers and kids also have something great to drink.  

      It will allow you to free up some of your valuable time not having to fuss with cocktails and making sure everyone has a drink poured.  I find that if you serve this Holiday Punch and put out bottles of wine, most everyone is happy and can serve themselves. Not to mention it’s rather yummy to sip on with or without alcohol.  Cheers!
