It might sound fancy, but this cocktail is nearly as simple as the classic, with a few extra ingredients thrown in.

Start with 1 ½ oz. of your favourite whiskey and ½ oz. of Lighthouse Lemonade in a tall glass with ice. For a traditional Summer Breeze, use the Lime-Lemon Lighthouse Lemonade, or keep things simple and opt for the original Lighthouse Lemonade.

Add 3 oz. of orange juice and 1 oz. of grapefruit juice to your glass and top with lemon-lime soda. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and slice of orange and you’re ready to sip. If you’re thinking of serving this drink on a larger scale, try it out in a punch bowl and garnish with slices of lime, lemon, orange, and grapefruit. It may look like a lot, but we guarantee it won’t last long!
