If you love whiskey sours but want to make them more crowd-friendly, this Whiskey Sour Sangria will definitely do the trick!
Caution: This Whiskey Sour Sangria may cause dancing on tables and extreme karaoke. Proceed with Care.
If you find me at a bar and want to order me a drink, it’ll be either a gin + tonic or a whiskey sour, depending on my mood.
Since outdoor drinking season is officially here, I thought I would take one of my favorite cocktails and turn it into a sangria that a whole crowd can enjoy. Although, I wouldn’t judge you if you decided to make a pitcher of them keep in your fridge all week long.
I mean, bourbon + wine + citrus = the perfect way to end a day if you ask me. I’m not going to drone on forever because I know you’re dying to get to the goods. So, I now present you with your new favorite poolside sip.
