Hammerstone’s Hard Lemonade

Summer is close at hand. There’s always got to be one drink in the back of your mind; a drink you can make at a moments notice. Because it’s going to be sticky – you know it. There’ll be days when you need to turn the tide. There’ll be muggy afternoons when you’ll have to hit your own personal reset button. There’ll be lazy hot days when you’ve got company kicking around the house in need of refreshment. For those days, this is your secret weapon. It’s a cocktail that’s quick and easy to make. We whip them up by the pitcher when the house is full of friends. It’s our way of staring summer’s oppressive heat right in the face and saying, “Not today my friend, not today.”

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 cups ice
  • 4 ounces whiskey
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rings

Directions

In a small saucepan, bring water and sugar to a simmer. Cook until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool. In a large pitcher, fill with ice. Stir in your simple syrup mixture, whiskey, juice, and lemon slices. Kick back and enjoy your victory.
