While Bronya Shillo and her sister grew up on Fishers Island, their parents ran the bar at the Pequot Inn. The most requested cocktail was The Fisher Island Lemonade. It was made with vodka, whiskey, and honey.

As she grew older she realized others needed to enjoy this signature drink and entered a male-dominated ready-to-drink industry. By 2014, she was ready to debut her Fishers Island Lemonade in a can. During Memorial Day weekend, she sold her cans to boaters who pulled up to the Pequot Inn. It’s not a wine, not a beer, not a seltzer, it’s a unique, dual-spirits-based craft cocktail composed of premium vodka, whiskey, honey, and lemon. This refreshing lemonade beverage has 9.0% ALC/VOL.

The beverage is fat-free, cholesterol-free, zero trans-fat, low sodium, and contains about 28g of sugar per can. Each can is 310 calories.

It became so popular for locals to take on their boats or sip at home, as well as for visitors to have while on the ferry ride.

This year Fisher Island Lemonade added 3 new flavors and a frozen version of their lemonade. The company motto is “find your island.”

The expansion includes Spiked Tea (almost like a spiked Arnold Palmer), Pink Flamingo (Pink lemonade), Fizz, and Frozen Spirit Pops, all of which use the original recipe as a base. The Spirit Pops are ideal on a hot summer day to hand out to adults by the pool, a barbecue, at the beach, or aboard a boat.

Go online to get ideas about how Fishers Island Lemonade is a great mix for popular cocktails. It’s an ideal spiked sour mix to make a refreshing margarita. Here’s the recipe:
