Summer cocktail delight

unnamed (16) 

Refreshing cocktails are a must have in the summer either for entertaining or sitting by the pool. This is a no hassle kind of cocktail. I recommend making a pitcher; because it doesn’t last. This drink reminds me of a whiskey sour but without all that sour mix.  It’s not too sweet, but just right. Cheers! 

Ingredients: (4 servings) 
 Juice of 3 lemons
1 1/2 cups Jeremiah Weed spiced whiskey 
2-3 cups crushed ice cubes 
1/2 cup simple syrup 
2 cups club soda 
6 mint leaves, chiffonade
Lemon peels, optional for garnish 

Preparation: 
Place all of the above ingredients in a pitcher and stir. Serve, garnish and enjoy.
