Honey Bourbon Lemonade


I think Wild Turkey is in my blood.  The amber goodness has been a staple adult beverage in my family for as long as I can remember.  So when I saw that Wild Turkey was making a honey version I flipped. 

Wild Turkey Honey is a ladies sipping version of bourbon.  No, I am not saying that we can’t take it straight, but.. my husband and father hate it.  It is really sweet and you have to be in the mood for it.  I have not been in the mood for it lately and was looking for something citrusy to drink.  I had seen an article in a magazine recently that used bourbon, lemonade, and honey to make a drink.  Well, I already had the honey bourbon and just added the fresh lemon juice. 

It’s a two ingredient drink that tastes like you needed to put in a lot of effort.  Fresh lemon juice is a must.  The bottled stuff is not acceptable.

I used Wild Turkey, but I know some of their competitors are also making honey versions.  Some are more syrupy, others have a stronger bourbon content. Have fun taste testing and choose what you like.
