This Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade is the perfect summer cocktail. It is easy to make and packs the right amount of punch perfect for an evening on the patio.
Summer has been the big ol’ b-word so far here in Texas. It’s been over one hundred degrees for way too many days and it is NOT enjoyable to sit in the heat. It’s not even worth it to try to walk the dog at all. Zack has hardly been grilling, too, which is what makes summers so much fun! What are you doing this summer to keep cool?
In an effort to cool down, we started making this refreshing Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade recipe. It is full of delicious blackberry syrup which isn’t over-powered by the tartness of the lemonade. It is truly refreshing in all this heat. Check out other drink recipes here.
