Two Jars of Sparkling Citrus Bourbon LemonadeI love bourbon. Oh yes, I love rum and vodka and everything else, but I LOVE BOURBON. Give me an Old Fashioned over almost any other drink when I’m looking for something to sip. If you like this drink, try my Original or Honey version of this cocktail!

I also love lemons and fruit and mint.

So this is a strong bourbon drink, with TWO ounces in it (you can make it with one ounce, if you want, but I’ll mock you for being a wimp) and I love the fizz that a little bit of club soda brings to it.

The orange? Classic bourbon pairing. Just smashing. The lemonade? Oh yah, it’s good.

Ingredients in Making Sparkling Citrus Bourbon Lemonade

The best part?

Mike loves this drink. I can make it  four two at a time.

I was seriously surprised that he liked it but then again, that bourbon and orange combo is seriously killer delicious.

I can totally assure you that this drink is man approved.


How To Make An Amazing Sparkling Citrus Bourbon Lemonade ! |

So again, you all have to make my Mint Honey Simple Syrup. If you haven’t yet, you simply have to because while you can use fine white sugar in your drinks, the mint honey flavor is what is making these drinks so seriously amazing. Trust me, double the batch and keep it in your fridge for summery drinks!

Let me know if you give this a whirl!

Love you more than bourbon (it’s a close call, but I really do),

Karlynn Johnston


  • 5 leaves mint
  • 3 tablespoons mint honey simple syrup
  • 4 cubes ice
  • 2 slices lemon halved
  • 1 orange quartered
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • 3 ounces lemonade`
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 can club soda


  • Place the mint and the honey in the bottom of a large cocktail glass (I LOVE mason jars for this) and muddle them together. (smash them to get the oils of the mint out) 
  • Place the lemon and orange in the bottom and press the juices out.
  • Add in the juices and bourbon.
  • With the juices, if making from concentrate, use less water than called for so you have a strong, tasty juice to add to your drink.
  • Fill the glass with ice.
  • Fill with club soda. Mix and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you prefer a strong drink, add another shot of bourbon.

    Have you even made this in a pitcher for group rather than individual glasses? Wondering about the measurements for that.

  2. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Mmm yeah I’ll be playing around with honey whiskey this summer too!

  3. Julie Nuttall Golin says

    I discovered the Gold Rush this past winter. This sounds like a fabulous summer alternative!

  4. Nicole Ebbesen Rowan says

    Triple like. I bet it would be good with honey whiskey too and just to prove I’m not a wimp, I’ll use 3 oz.

  5. Rose-Mary Hall says

    Any time you need an assistant, Magpie…..

    Great idea! I won’t bug you about less bourbon 😉

  9. The Kitchen Magpie says

    We were drinking these when it was plus 29! My husband loved them, which surprised me. They’re now one of his new favorite summer drinks!

  10. Mags Cheung says

    The Kitchen Magpie – I am a bit of a bourbon wimp so may put less of that. However, what I am going to do is instead of water icecubes, I am going to freeze orange juice instead to it doesn’t get watered down. =)

  11. The Kitchen Magpie says

    You NEED to try this! Just blame it on me 😉
