Drink Recipes: Gear Up For National Lemonade Day With Canadian Club Whisky

In my opinion lemonade is the ultimate drink mixer. I’m sorry Coke, I’m sorry cranberry juice but I’m just being honest here. Lemonade adds a sweet and tangy edge to vodka, tequila, and even whisky. So on the eve of National Lemonade Day (August 20) I of course had to post a few lemonade inspired drink recipes. Today’s recipes come courtesy of Canadian Club Whisky which makes for a smooth addition when it comes to most lemonade-based drink recipes. (Side note: If you plan on making any lemonade-based drinks you’ve got to use Simply Lemonade. It’s absolutely delicious!)
