RECIPE BOX: STRAWBERRY WHISKEY LEMONADE
I rarely mix my own drinks since I was lucky enough to marry the bartender (okay, so he had stopped being a bartender years before we met, but his skills translated, and I am grateful every weekend!), but on the rare occasions G is out of town and I need something besides a glass of wine, I try my hand at mixology. Last week, I was craving something with strawberries and whiskey, so I decided to toss a few things in a cocktail shaker and see what happened. Reader, it was SO GOOD that it's getting a blog post! Sweet, slightly tart, and so refreshing, it's the perfect drink for a warm afternoon.
STRAWBERRY WHISKEY LEMONADE
2 oz Whiskey
4 oz Simple Syrup
4 oz Lemon Juice
Splash of Grenadine
3-4 frozen strawberries
Place ingredients in a cocktail shaker with 6-7 ice cubes. Shake vigorously, then pour everything (ice cubes too!) into a glass. Enjoy!
