DOTW: Whiskey Lemonade

It’s time for the refreshing cocktails! Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, the trees are blossoming, it’s 70 degrees, I feel like I am coming back to life. I’m so excited! I’m a big citrus fan, so a Whiskey Lemonade is right up my alley. The honey syrup is a delicious addition, and it is very easy to make. Serve this cocktail at your spring time get togethers, on your porch in the evening, or even on Easter Sunday!

What you’ll need:

for the honey lemon syrup:

  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 – 2 twigs rosemary

In a small saucepan, bring water and honey to a boil. Reduce heat, add the rosemary and simmer for 15 minutes. Let it cool.

In a cocktail shaker, combine whiskey, honey lemon syrup, and lemonade with ice. Shake well. Add ice to a cocktail glass and strain contents of shaker. Top off with club soda, garnish with lemon slice and/or rosemary twigs.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!

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!
