Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade

Jessie Johnson

Sweet, tart blackberry lemonade gets all grown up with a splash of whiskey and a sprig of rosemary. Jessie of Life As A Strawberry has transformed an already delicious drink into the perfect summer cocktail: Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade.  It’s easy to make, super refreshing, and packed with summer flavor!  

Fresh rosemary adds depth and earthiness to the winning combination of sweet berries and tart lemon. Jessie says, “Lighten the drinks up a bit (and stretch them to serve more people!) by topping each drink off with a splash of tonic water or sparkling wine.

Why not invite some friends to join you in celebrating summer with a pitcher or two of Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade?  You’ll be glad you did.
