6 Bourbon Drinks with Honey for Every Time of Year

For many, sipping on bourbon whiskey is a warm and cozy activity for colder months. But, not only is bourbon a smooth and rich spirit, it’s very adaptable to all occasions, all year round. Here are 6 of our favoritebourbon drinks with honey for every season. 


  • Honey Bourbon Lemonade

  • Simple and refreshing, honey bourbon lemonade is a perfect warm-weather beverage for everyone at the party. To make enough bourbon drinks with honey and lemon for a small get-together, mix 2 quarts of water with 2 cups fresh lemon juice, 1 ½ cups honey, 1 cup bourbon, and 1 lemon sliced into rounds for garnish. 


  • Lavender-Honey Bourbon Cocktail

  • The perfect way to kick off summer in late spring is with bourbon drinks with honey and floral lavender simple syrup. First, make a basic simple syrup, adding ¾ cup honey, and infusing 3-tbsp culinary-grade lavender flowers. Strain the lavender flowers once cooled and add to an ice-filled glass with 2-3-ounces bourbon, ½ squeezed lime, and 4-ounces ginger ale. 


  • Bourbon Honey Strawberry Smash

  • In the dog days of summer, a bourbon honey strawberry smash is a delicious way to cool down and enjoy in-season fruit while relaxing on a patio. In a cocktail shaker, muddle 3 halved strawberries, 2 lemon slices, and ¼ cup fresh mint with ½ tsp honey and 2-ounces bourbon. Fill with ice and shake. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into glasses filled with ice. Top off with soda water and a strawberry and mint sprig garnish. 


  • Bourbon and Honey Beer Cocktail

  • What better way to showcase your favorite microbrew this summer, or watch the big game this fall than with bourbon drinks with honey and beer? Simply add 2-ounces bourbon, ½ ounce fresh lemon juice, 1 tsp honey and 2 dashes of bitters to a cocktail shaker with ice. Divide between two pint glasses and top with 2 12-ounce beer bottles. 


  • Citrus Honey Hot Toddy

  • On those chilly fall nights, warm up with a hot toddy made with lemon and honey. Heat 1 ½ cups water in a saucepan until hot. Stir in 2-tbsp honey until it dissolves. Then, add 6-tbsp bourbon and 2-tbsp fresh lemon juice. Pour into two mugs and garnish with a lemon peel and cinnamon stick. 


  • Bourbon Honey Gingerbread Eggnog
