Today’s topic is “the best thing about being an adult”. Does it make me sound like a total jakey to say alcohol? Well maybe it does, but who cares, let’s not take this too seriously. My favourite cocktails are currently ones that involve a slug (or two) of Jack Daniels. Unfortunately, the multitude of ingredients needed can make home-made cocktails kinda pricey and time-consuming. My solution – simplify the recipe, stick it in a fancy drink receptacle and no one will be any the wiser.
Here’s my super simple, barely-even-a-cocktail recipe for Easy Peasy Lynchburg Lemonade:
1 shot Jack Daniels
2 drops Angostura Bitters
Half teaspoon caster sugar
top up with cloudy lemonade.
Shake in a cocktail shaker, pour into ye olde fashioned lemonade bottles, serve with a paper straw and await the oohs over your fancy cocktail making skillz. Simple right? You can make this even better but switching out half of the lemonade with raspberry juice and squishing a couple of fresh raspberries in there. Now that is fancy!
