Strawberry Mint Lemonade Bourbon Fizz

I tend to stay away from cocktails with dark liquor.
It usually brings back bad memories of way too fun parties.

But something took over my senses and I decided to make a cocktail with bourbon.
A few weekends ago I made my recipe for blackberry lemonade and decided that some strawberry mint lemonade would be perfect.

Even more perfect would be strawberry mint lemonade with bourbon.

And, I was right.

It might be one of my new favorite cocktails.
I know that the name is a little long, but you will drink it in no time flat.



Strawberry Mint Lemonade Bourbon Fizz

3 ounces strawberry mint lemonade*
2 ounces bourbon
mint leaves
club soda

Combine the lemonade, bourbon, and 2-3 mint leaves in a shaker with ice and shake until well combined.  Pour into a glass filled with ice and top with club soda.  Garnish with mint leaves.



For the lemonade:

2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups simple syrup
3 cups water
1 cup strawberries
20 mint leaves

Combine the lemon juice, simple syrup, and water in a pitcher.  In a glass, muddle the strawberries and mint leaves and strain with a fine mesh sieve.  Pour juice into the pitcher and mix well.


Enjoy,

    And, I'd forget the club soda & indulge!

  2. I have about 14 different Bourbons on my Bar and I would hope to not run out of all of them, but I do make sure to replace a bottle within a day or two of finishing it.
