#DOTW: Whiskey Honey Lemonade

I’m on a lemonade kick lately! I go through my phases, but they always turn out helpful. Like in this case: Just add it to alcohol, and fun will ensue. Inspired by two drinks I was served involving lemonade, I went on a search, and promptly found this gem. The recipe asks for a splash of club soda; I ended up choosing Voss’ lemon and cucumber club soda, and it was scrumptious. But I’ll leave that up to you…



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Macallan 18 years (or quality whiskey of your choice
  • 2 oz of lemonade
  • 1/2 oz honey syrup
  • splash of club soda
  • mint leaves
  • lemon slice

Combine whiskey, lemonade and honey syrup and pour over ice, splash club soda on top, then add mint leaves and lemon slice for garnish.

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!
