Bourbon Squeeze cocktail 

Nothing says summertime like lemonade. Did you know Lemonade was first served in Paris, France as far back as 1630? What better way for us to celebrate summer than with a cocktail that is inspired by this citrus wonder. Lemonade is easy to make it ahead of time and you can store it in a pitcher for guests to serve themselves. As a non-alcoholic option, pre-make the cocktail and omit the Bourbon.

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1/2-2/3 cup Bourbon (adjust to your taste)
6 cups ginger ale lemon slices for garnish

In a small saucepan, combine granulated sugar and water and heat over medium heat. Heat until sugar dissolves into water and mixture is clear. Simmer 1-2 minutes, then remove from heat. Add lemon juice, mint leaves, and Bourbon, then let mixture cool. Pour mixture through a fine strainer into a large pitcher to remove solid particles and mint leaves. Add ginger ale and stir to combine. Add ice and lemon slices and serve cold. To jazz things up, rim the glass with sugar (dip the rim of the glass in lemon juice and then into a shallow bowl of white sugar.) Lastly, pour the cocktail over ice cubes, garnish with a lemon slice and sprig of mint.
