1 cup sugar

1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 large lemons)

1/2 cup fresh orange juice (1 large orange)

4 cups club soda, chilled

Lemon slices (about 4 large lemons)

Orange slices (1 large orange)

1 bunch fresh mint sprigs, plus more for garnish

Crushed ice

6 shots bourbon


  1. Combine 1 1/2 cups water and sugar in a small saucepan over high heat. Cook until the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Cool the simply syrup completely. This simple syrup can be made 1 week in advance and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.
  2. Combine the simple syrup, lemon juice and orange juice in a pitcher. Mix in the club soda. Add the lemon slices, orange slices and mint.
  3. Fill glasses with crushed ice. Add 1 shot bourbon to each glass and fill to the top with the sparkling lemonade. Garnish each glass with mint.
