Easy Whiskey Lemonade

Sharing is caring!

Whiskey Lemonade is one of our favorite whiskey mixed drinks to serve up in the spring and summer. Whiskey and lemonade come together for one refreshing summer drink.

If you are a fan of lemonade, try making your own Instant Pot lemonade to mix in with this Crown Royal drink. Or whip up my Summer Brew that is a vodka, lemonade, and beer mixture.

Whiskey Lemonade

My husband loves his whiskey. Jack Daniels, Crown Royal, or even Maker’s Mark. He loves to unwind after a long day on the job with a light and refreshing drink on occasion.

One of the ways is pairing with lemonade. Add in a fresh squeeze of lemon for added citrus flavor and sip away. 

Crown Royal Mixed Drink

If you have ever scratched your head and thought what to mix with crown royal, this is a great drink. Or you can use other brands of whiskey. Like Canadian Whisky, Jim Bean, Jack Daniels, etc.

What Alcohol Should I Mix with Lemonade?

While there are many options of alcohol that you can mix with lemonade, my recommendation is whiskey.

Grab your favorite brand of Whiskey and do a shot or more, and then pour on lemonade over a glass of ice. It is refreshing, light, and a wonderful adult mixed drink to sip away on. 


Crown Royal Black 

Now, we used Crown Royal Black for this whiskey and lemonade. BUT, I will be the first to say, use any brand of whiskey you prefer! Sometimes we just Jack Daniels and other times we don’t. It is all about what your personal preference is. 

How to Make

Step 1: In a glass or mixing cup, add your lemonade and cubed or crushed ice. 

Step 2: Add in a shot of your whiskey of choice. Or if you are feeling lucky add a splash more for a stronger drink. Use a cocktail shaker or a spoon and mix up your cocktail.

Pour into a chilled cocktail glass if you would like, and sip away. If you want a pop of color add a maraschino cherry on top or even an orange peel for a pop of color.

Can I Use Homemade Lemonade for Whiskey Mixed Drink

Store bought or homemade lemonade will work for your lemonade and whiskey mixed drink! It is all about what you prefer. Feel free to even play with flavored lemonades for added layers of flavor!
