Pink lemonade is a quintessential summer drink, and it also makes a great mixer with an adult beverage. While vodka is a popular choice to mix with lemonade, other spirits can add an interesting twist as well. If you’re ready to think outside of the vodka and lemonade box, you need to try out this Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey and pink lemonade cocktail.
While cinnamon-flavored whiskey and pink lemonade may seem like and strange combination at first glance, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the way the citrus in the lemonade mellows the spiciness of the whiskey for this tart and refreshing concoction. It’s perfect for sipping in your backyard, at the beach and wherever else the summer season takes you.

The drink is super-cute served in mason jars, and you can add cinnamon sticks and lemon slices for extra flavor and a pretty garnish. Make a big batch to serve at a barbecue, or mix a single drink for a refreshing elixir at the end of a long, hot summer day.
Feel free to experiment with the type of lemonade you use. Strawberry or blueberry lemonade would make for a fruity and fun twist and using a mix of half lemonade and half iced tea would be delicious as well. Adjust the amount of grenadine to your preferred level of sweetness.
