This Irish lemonade is a refreshing cocktail with incredible flavor and aroma. The flavors of fresh lemon juice, plain syrup, Irish whiskey, and ginger beer pair perfectly, and a sprig of rosemary is more than just garnish. The rosemary scent complements the strong ginger flavor so well that each sip is an incredible experience from start to finish.
Irish lemonade quickly became our family favorite. It is so good that it even exceeded Whisky Sour Y Irish coffee.
My husband is deeply in love with bourbon and whiskey now. I never knew that I would have more whiskey, bourbon, and whiskey in my house than other spirits. But my bar is full of dark liquors and I am happy to experiment and mix you delicious cocktails.
Recently, I learned how to make it the perfect Whiskey Sour, but those too can get quite old. What I really wanted to do was make a new whiskey cocktail for our St. Patrick's Day celebration. The end results were absolutely incredible and I made cocktails that will be popular well beyond St. Patrick's Day.
The ingredients are very simple, but they all combine beautifully to create a strong and refreshing flavor. My favorite part is the way rosemary works with the ginger flavor of ginger beer. I highly recommend using ginger beer and not ginger ale because the ginger ale soda is too sweet and has a mild ginger flavor. The ginger beer flavor is more natural and much stronger.

Even through rosemary it is just a garnish, it is essential. The scent of rosemary blends with the flavor of ginger, lemon, and whiskey as you drink and create a unique flavor that is very complementary.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN IRISH LEMONADE
Irish whiskey – Jameson is the most common Irish whiskey option, but you can also try Tullamore D.E.W., Dead Rabbit, Bushmills or any other you love.
Lemon – Fresh lemon is the best option. Bottled lemon juice tastes very different from freshly squeezed, so grab some lemons at the store instead of a bottle.
Simple syrup – Simple syrup is a mixture of equal parts sugar and hot water. You can easily make a larger batch of plain syrup and store it in the refrigerator, in an airtight container to use when needed. When stored properly, it should last up to a month in the refrigerator.
Ginger beer – Ginger beer is a non-alcoholic drink made with ginger, sugar and water. It has a strong and spicy ginger flavor and is pleasantly aromatic. It is the best option for this cocktail, much better than a ginger ale.
Rosemary – fresh rosemary is an important ingredient even if it is only a garnish. The scent of rosemary works wonders when enjoying these refreshing cocktails. Add a very special touch that you don't want to miss.
HOW TO MAKE IRISH LEMONADE
Start by combining lemon juice, plain syrup, and whiskey in a shaker. Shake vigorously for a couple of seconds and pour into an old glass with ice.
Finish off by pouring about 3 ounces of ginger beer into the glass, gently stir and add a sprig of rosemary about 3 inches long.
