Bourbon-Lime Spritzers


I found this recipe years ago in one of the many Christmas with Southern Living books I’ve collected, and it has become one of my favorite cocktails.

1 (12 oz) can of frozen limeade concentrate, thawed

1 cup bourbon

Ginger ale, chilled

Lime rounds, for garnish


Combine the limeade concentrate and bourbon in a large jar.  With the lid tightly screwed on, shake to combine.  Fill rocks glasses with ice, then fill each glass about halfway with the bourbon-lime mixture, or to taste.  Top with ginger ale until each glass is filled.  Garnish with lime rounds.

Serves 6


🥃 Substitute ginger beer for the ginger ale for a spicier, sophisticated beverage.
