The Weekly Nightcap - Irish Lemonade
as soon as this warmer weather hit, i found myself in the chick-fil-a drive thru lane ordering a big lemonade. that's right, chick-fil-a has some of the best freshly squeezed lemonade i have tried. i get a large one to go without ice and save some to enjoy later.
deep down, i knew just what i was saving the extra lemonade for. i was saving it to celebrate st. patty's day in the weekly nightcap.
what better way to celebrate the irish (and this amazing weather we are having here on the east coast) than with jameson irish whiskey and freshly squeezed lemonade? it may sound like an odd combination but it really does work - think whiskey sour.
one sip and you'll feel like you are on the emerald isle with the sunshine on your face. sláinte!
makes 2 drinks
4 oz irish whiskey (Jameson is my favorite)
12 oz freshly squeezed lemonade
fill two tall glasses with ice. pour 2 ounces of whiskey into each glass and fill with lemonade, roughly 6 ounces per glass. stir and enjoy! garnish with raspberries if desired.
