Strawberry Whiskey Lemonade may not be the official drink of summer, but it is the official drink of this summer. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Blackberry Whiskey Lemonades and a simply Whiskey & Coke, but the strawberry syrup in this recipe is just too tasty during the summer heat.
This drink is not overly complicated and it’s not overly sweet. It’s a little bit tart, a little bit sweet, yet packed with a lot of flavor — that’s the beauty of lemonade. I’m a firm believer in Evan Williams as my budget whiskey – and it makes a perfectly sweet and tart, easy to make, summer cocktail. You can find more drink recipes here.
