Sinful Berry Lemonade

(Makes 1 pitcher)

Summer is all about the berries and this bourbon lemonade cocktail is perfect for your next summer bbq! This edgier cousin to sangria pairs perfectly with grilled steaks, burgers, or veggies, and corn on the cob. Whether you’re using store bought lemonade, or making your own, the sweetness and acidity ratios often vary. If you find your lemonade too sweet or wine-forward, you can add additional lemon juice and adjust to your liking.
