Fishers Island is located in Long Island Sound, between the eastern tips of Connecticut and Long Island.

Open for 100 years, it has long been a haven for summer visitors.

The Pequot, the only public bar and restaurant on the island, is a gathering place for cocktails, burgers, wood-fired pizza, local Fishers Island oysters and fish, and a light-up dance floor.

For most of us who won’t get to sample the delights of The Pequot, the establishment’s famous Fishers Island Lemonade is now available beyond The Pequot.

The spiked lemonade, with a 9% ABV*, is made from:

  • Premium distilled vodka
  • Whiskey
  • Lemon
  • Honey
    There are no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners; no high fructose corn syrup. And no malt!

    For us, Fishers Island Lemonade is a perfect summer cocktail. We don’t need a straw or a glass; just the can, chilled.

    We keep the can cold with last week’s Top Pick, Zak’s Vacuum Insulated Can Holder.

    But other people:

  • Drink poured over ice.
  • Blended it with other alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages (photo #2).
  • Use it as a mixer—think of it as spiked sour mix.
  • Add other juices or a splash of liqueur.
  • Add fresh fruit.
  • Garnish with fresh mint.
  • Make a hot lemon toddy in the colder months: Just add brandy or whiskey to taste.

    For those who want a higher proof drink, there are numerous options, including:

  • Ginger Mojito
  • Half-And-Half, with iced tea (photo #3)
  • Margarita
  • Pink Lemonade, with cranberry juice
  • Shandy, with beer (photo #4)
  • More Recipes

    The company is a good citizen: a member of 1% For The Planet, which supports environmental causes.


    *ABV is the abbreviation for Alcohol By Volume, the percent of a beer, spirit or wine that is alcohol. Double the number to get the proof of a spirit; e.g., 40% ABV is 80 proof.
