I have a fun cocktail recipe for you and a recipe to k,eep the kids busy while you sip it! Lol! Kentucky lemonade is called such because it has bourbon in it! I read that a local brewpub was selling bottles of this for carryout. I did some digging to find out what this was all about.
Extremely closeup of Kentucky lemonade in a Mason jar:
You need half a stick of Crystal light lemonade, a shot of lemon juice (I may reduce to half a shot next time), a shot of bourbon, a tsp. of simple syrup (I had some made but I could probably leave this out if I didn’t have any). Mix all of that together really well, add ice, and then top with diet ginger ale – I probably used 1/4 cup of ginger ale. It was very lemony which I liked but you could reduce the lemon juice for less lemony flavor.
It was delicious! I enjoyed this on a sunny day on the patio while listening to country music.
And to keep the kids busy while you sip, make this cloud dough! It only requires two ingredients which you may have on hand or could probably order easy enough at your next grocery pick up. My sister sent this screenshot.
Let me know if you try one or both recipes!
