As promised, today we share the recipe for our original cocktail: the Lawrenceburg Lemonade. This isn’t a sticky-sweet drink like its Southern cousin, Lynchburg Lemonade. It pays homage to Anderson County, Ky.’s two fine distilleries, Wild Turkey and Four Roses – and to my husband’s hometown. It gets sweetness from American Honey, a great bourbon liqueur. Lawrenceburg Lemonade is a little lighter than some cocktails, which might make you think of it as a summer drink. But with the warm weather we have been having here in Kentucky, it’s also enjoyable in the dead of winter.
1.5 oz. Four Roses Yellow Label
1.5 oz. Wild Turkey American Honey
Two dashes of lemon juice
A splash of water
Serve on the rocks
