Beach Read / Honey Lemonade Whiskey Cocktail

Despite the bright cover and airy title, this romance from Emily Henry had surprising depth. While it still leaned into the rivals to lovers trope and the characters’ insecurities leading to miscommunications, this book had much more than I expected. From family trauma to death cults, this was more than just a light summery read.  I was so won over by the story that I immediately went and added Emily Henry’s other books to my wish list after I finished reading.

In honor of the summery setting, I made a honey lemonade whiskey cocktail. It would be perfect for sipping out on the deck while January and Gus work on writing the next Great American Novel.

Honey Lemonade Whiskey Cocktail

Ingredients

  • FOR THE LEMONADE
    • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 or 5 lemons)
    • 3 cups cold water
    • 1/2 cup honey
  • FOR THE WHISKEY LEMONADE
    • 2 oz whiskey
    • 6 oz of fresh lemonade

Directions

FOR THE LEMONADE

Squeeze all the juice from your lemons to equal 1 cup and pour into a pitcher.  Pour in the water, the honey, the lemon slices and mix well.

If your honey is cold or solid, heat it up in the microwave or a double boiler first and then add it to the liquid.  It will mix better if it is warm. 

FOR THE WHISKEY LEMONADE

Fill a glass with ice.  Pour in the whiskey first and then fill with the fresh lemonade.
