Seems this warmer weather has me on a sour kick & I don’t mean my mood. Hehehe 🙂 I told you when I made that Lemon Simple Syrup that I would be making all sorts of things with it. The cool part is that not only did I give you some ideas of what you could use it for- but I’m making more recipes than I ever thought I would with it. Way beyond my normal uses of Lemon Simple Syrup. I love that I can share them all here with you & you can enjoy them too. This is one sour beverage recipe that you will love all through the warmer months. It’s a crisp & refreshing Millionaire Sour AND I am also giving you an option for making it non-alcoholic too. It’s a win for everyone.
Just look at those gorgeous colors together – reds, oranges & yellows!! LOVE IT!
Picture serving this at all those BBQ’s – Memorial Day, 4th of July & Labor Day!

This looks so summery! Thanks for including a non-alcoholic version too (I’m not a big fan of Whisky). Btw, I’m hosting a link party on my blog and I’d love for you to come over and share this recipe. Have a nice weekend!

Beautiful cocktail. I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and gave up my evening cocktail, but the virgin recipe sounds good too. Please come share at the Anything Goes linky, if you have not already.
