When you think of whiskey, you probably think of a traditional cocktail like the Old Fashioned or Manhattan enjoyed by a warm fire on a cold night, right?
Not so fast.
Devils River Whiskey, the fastest growing premium Texas whiskey, is changing that perception with a variety of options made with their award-winning whiskey for a new, unexpected, summertime twist.
From cooling lemonades to whiskey sangrias, below are a few of our favorite Devils River #SinfullySmoothWhiskey recipes.
The Razmanian Devil is a great alternative to the typical margarita. But don’t let the name fool you. Although devilishly good, this fresh take will cool even the hottest summer days. Frozen or on-the-rocks, our 90-proof Devils River Bourbon mixes well with lemon juice, raspberry liqueur, and simple syrup, finished with a splash of lemonade.
Watermelon Fizz is dangerously bold as it combines Devils River 90-proof Bourbon with the rich flavor of Peach Schnapps, lime juice, watermelon, thyme, and ginger beer to create the ideal pool-side aperitif.
