Two amazing fruit flavors combine to make a delicious bourbon lemonade that will keep you refreshed all summer long!

Why I Think You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Add in lemonade, a summer favorite, and you’ve got the perfect mix.
  • It scales easily, so you can make a larger pitcher for gatherings in a snap!

How to Make Cherry and Raspberry Bourbon Lemonade

This recipe is pretty easy to make, which is why it’s such a popular choice amongst our readers.

  1. Combine the first five ingredients in a pitcher.
  2. Add sugar to suit your tastes.
  3. Pour bourbon into two glasses and top with this mixture and some ice!

Swap out the berries!

Want to mix things up? You can easily change the juices and come up with other variations that might suit your tastes, it’s a fun way to try new concoctions!

I recommend using a good lemonade for this drink. While you can buy some powdered ones that aren’t bad – the best tasting seems to always be the frozen lemonade that you just add water to so that would be my recommendation.

It’s also good to garnish the drink with a lime slice but feel free to mix things up and garnish with a berry instead of that’s what you have readily available!

Regardless of how you enjoy this drink or how you choose to change things up (or whether you even do!) I think it will make for the perfect summer cocktail.

Enjoy responsibly!

    Nice weather? It snowed this morning lol. How about a hot cocoa recipe

  3. Homemade & Yummy says

    Yeah…that sounds good right about now!!

    Karlynn …….. Everything about this post has me giddy. Bourbon?
    Check. Cherries? Check. Raspberries? Check. Lemonade? Check. Except
    maybe the sadness that Summer is going going gone. I ain’t gonna lie – I
    don’t love the hot weather. I know what you mean about Alberta (I grew
    up in Strathmore) but the heat just kills me. I’m much more a Fall kinda
    girl – especially since I’ve canned the crap outta cherries this year
    so I can make these bad boys (aka cherry raspberry bourbon lemonades)
    all Winter long. Bourbonator solidarity girl!

    So glad to be a part of FBC with you!! xo!

    Would you believe that we are days away from September and I haven’t had a single glass of lemonade all summer?! Gah! When I do, it should have bourbon in it, like this one. Yum 🙂

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      @Janice Haha yes, when you finally get around to it, you should add bourbon. Bourbon makes everything better!
