#DOTW: Whiskey Strawberry Lemonade

Nope, I’m not ready to give in to fall quite yet. It’s still summer in my liquor cabinet. Strawberries, I haven’t utilized strawberries yet. I love a fresh strawberry lemonade, so it seems like a natural progression to add some good old whiskey. This takes a little extra preparation, you’ll have to make your own strawberry syrup, but it’s easy as pie. Enjoy!


What you’ll need:

Strawberry syrup:

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

drink assembly:

  • 2 oz Glenfiddich (or quality whiskey of you choice)
  • 1 oz lemon sour mix
  • 1 oz strawberry syrup

Combine the strawberries, sugar and water in a small pot. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 15 minutes. Let it cool for a while, then either strain it, or put it in a blender.

Combine ingredients and decorate with strawberries.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
