Sparkling Rum Lemonade

  • Author: The Fitchen
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


Adults only!



For Cocktail

  • 4 oz. lemonade [recipe below]
  • 2 oz. gold rum
  • 2 oz. champagne
  • 1 lemon for garnish
  • cane sugar for garnish
  • mint for garnish
  • ice

For Lemonade Ingredient

  • 24 oz. water
  • juice of 2 lemons [2-3 Tbsp.]
  • 2 Tbsp. cane sugar


  1. 1. Begin by making the lemonade. Add lemon juice, water, and sugar to a jar and shake to combine. This lemonade is not on the sweet side and we made it that way for a reason. We wanted to taste the rum without being distracted by an overly sweet lemonade flavor. If you prefer a sweeter drink, simply add more sugar to taste and shake until it is dissolved.
  2. 2. On a small plate or in a bowl, spread a layer of cane sugar. Wet the rim of the jar and dip it into the sugar.
  3. 3. Pour 2 shots of rum to the Mason jar, then a hefty portion of ice. Add 4 oz. of lemonade.
  4. 4. Toss 3-4 thin lemon slices into the jar and top it all off with champagne.


  • The lemonade makes enough for 6 cocktails. Directions are for 1. Simply recreate the recipe for each drink.
