Black Lemonade Cocktail

Posted by Tess Walker on

Spring has officially sprung, and is it just me or does it feel like we sprang all the way into summer? I'm a sucker for an ice cold bevvo on a warm afternoon, and this recipe is an easy favourite. Also, just a side note Black Lemonade can be made alcoholic or non-alcoholic, simply just miss out the Makers Mark. 

I would have to say that this is my classic go-to cocktail for those afternoon drinks on the deck or by the pool (I vote by the pool), the fresh lemon juice and mint combo makes for the most refreshing sip while the suns (and guns) are out. 

In this recipe I have opted for Markers Mark Bourbon Whisky because of the sweetness it brings to the table, however if your not a fan than it could easily be opted out for a Spiced Rum, Kracken would be my choice, or if your a little more straight laced Vodka will also work a charm. 

Hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!

Black Lemonade

Serves 2

Style: Built & Shaken

Drinkware: Highball Glass




  1. In a heatproof jug, steep tea and boiled water for 5-7 minutes. You want a strong black tea flavour to help cut through the lemon. While steeping, set aside. Strain when ready and sit in fridge to cool.
  2. In a shaker muddle lemon wedges with makers mark, sugar syrup, half the amount of peppermint and cooled brewed tea. Add 1 handful of ice, shake together.
  3. Into two glassed pour shaker contents over ice, top with soda water and garnish with fresh mint.
