Whip-Crack Whiskey Lemonade


Austin Hope, owner and distiller of Highspire Rye, loves drinking lemonade in the summer, and who can blame him? It’s the perfect patio drink, and as Hope says, “it’s even better when it’s boozy.”

1 oz. rye whiskey
1 tsp. honey-rosemary simple syrup*
¼ cup lemonade
¼ cup club soda
Tools: barspoon
Glass: rocks or collins
Garnish: 1 sprig rosemary and fresh lemon slices

Add the whiskey to an ice-filled glass. Top with lemonade, soda water and syrup and stir to combine. Garnish.

Honey-Rosemary Syrup: In a saucepan over medium heat, bring ½ cup of water and ½ cup of honey to a boil. Reduce heat, add 2 sprigs of rosemary, and simmer for 15 minutes or until reduced by half. Let cool.
