Check out these 4 different Crown Apple and Lemonade recipes. Each one creates a different flavor or texture and all are delicious.

Crown Apple and Lemonade Ingredients

Simple and easy are my favorite kind of drinks! This 1st recipe is straightforward with just two ingredients:

  • Crown Apple
  • Lemonade

Crown Apple and Lemonade Garnish

Garnish is all about a beautiful presentation and it makes a simple drink look fancy!

If you’re making this drink for yourself to sip on at home or out by the pool, you’ll probably want to skip the garnish. Although, I do enjoy eating the apple slices after they’ve soaked in the apple whisky. So, maybe add just a few to your drink. I like to call this a cocktail appetizer because it’s an all-in-one drink and snack.

 

No time to make it right now? Save it for later and pin it!

If you’re hosting a party or serving guests, by all means, add the garnish. This extra little step takes hardly any time and it looks as though you’ve really gone out of your way to make your friends a special treat.

For a pretty cocktail, you’ll want to add apple slices and lemon wheels in the drink itself. Then add a few apple slices on top with a lemon wheel perched on the edge of the glass to finish it off.

How to Make Crown Apple and Lemonade (4 Ways)

Step-by-step instructions for all 4 lemonade recipes are below. Let’s start with recipe #1!

Step 1: Slice lemons and apples for garnishes.

To make lemon wheels (which look extra pretty) cut the lemon crossways instead of longways. Longways makes a lemon wedge and crossways makes lemon wheels.

To get thin apple slices, start by cutting the apple in half but not right down the middle of the apple. Cut from top to bottom just slightly to the side of the apple core.

Next, place the apple flesh side down on your cutting board. Then start slicing thin cuts from the outside side edge.

A half an apple makes a lot of garnish. In the picture below, I’ve cut half an apple and ended up with about 15 slices.

Step 2: Fill a cocktail glass with lemon wheels, apple slices and ice.

Start with a lemon wheel at the bottom and add a few ice cubes to hold it in place. Then add apple slices and lemon wheels alternating with ice. This will hold the fruit slices in place instead of them all floating to the top.

Step 3: Pour a shot or a shot and a half into the glass.

The whisky blends so well with the lemonade you can barely tell it’s there. You’ll taste the apple flavor, but not a strong whisky flavor.

Step 4: Fill the rest of your glass with lemonade. I like Calypso Lemonade or the Simply Lemonade brands. They are both delish!

Step 5: Add garnish.

To make an apple slice fan, use a toothpick or a pretty stainless steel cocktail skewer to hold several slices together.

Crown Apple and Lemonade Variations

This second recipe adds a touch of bubbly to the drink which makes it seem more like a cocktail. Maybe it’s just me, but I love a little fizz in my drinks!

Drink Recipe #2:

  • Crown Apple
  • Lemonade
  • Seltzer Water

For this recipe, cut back a little on the lemonade and top with bubbly seltzer water. I chose a non-flavored seltzer so the drink still tastes like apple and lemonade with a light fizz. I think a lemon-lime flavored Seltzer would also work perfectly and add more citrus flavor.

Drink Recipe #3:

  • Crown Apple
  • Lemonade
  • Ginger Ale

Again, cut back on the amount of lemonade and top with ginger ale. The fizzy texture and added ginger flavor is delicious. This variation still lets the apple whiskey come through, so don’t worry that the apple flavor will disappear.

The ginger ale adds another layer of flavor that mixes perfectly.

Drink Recipe #4:

  • Crown Apple
  • Lemonade
  • Apple Juice

Crown Royal Apple and Lemonade with Apple Juice ingredients.

 

This might be my favorite combination for this drink. It’s hard to choose, but I love how the added shot of apple juice pumps up the apple flavor.

To make this variation, cut back on the lemonade just enough to add one shot of apple juice.

There you have it! Four ways to create refreshing lemonade drinks with Crown Apple.

Each has its own flavor profile yet keeping the dominant flavors of Apple Crown and lemonade.
