This whiskey lemonade recipe is easy to make with just 3 ingredients and tastes so refreshing!  See notes above for extra ingredients that you are welcome to add as well.


  • 1.5 ounces (3 tablespoons) whiskey
  • 3 ounces (1/3 cup) lemonade, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary or mint
  • ice


  1. Muddle.  Add the bourbon, lemonade, and a sprig of fresh rosemary or mint to a cocktail shaker.  Use a cocktail muddler (or the end of a thick wooden spoon) to briefly muddle the herb.
  2. Strain. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass filled with ice.
  3. Serve.  Serve immediately, garnished with an extra sprig of rosemary or fresh mint, plus a lemon peel or slice, if desired.


If you would like a sweeter cocktail, feel free to stir a teaspoon of two of maple syrup into the cocktail before straining.
