Most of us tend to think of Whiskey as a winter drink. After all, there’s nothing like enjoying an Old Fashioned or a Manhattan by a warm fire on a cold night.
Devils River Whiskey, the fastest growing premium Texas whiskey, want to show that, Bourbon especially, is really ideal; spirit no matter what the season.
To try to change that perception, the brand has created a variety of cocktail options made with their award-winning whiskey for a new, unexpected, summertime twist.
“Bourbon can be as versatile and mixable as rum, vodka and tequila,” said Eric Hundelt, Senior Vice President at Devils River Whiskey.
“Devils River Whiskey expressions are sure to surprise as whiskey can take on a different persona fusing with the flavours of summer fruits like raspberry and lemon for something light and fresh.”
Chad Larson is the Barman at American Bonded in Denver, Colorado. “Devils River Whiskey is the perfect summertime whiskey to use in refreshing citrus cocktails like a Collins or a classic sour.
“If you feel like getting creative, Devils River shines through when you use beautiful local honey as the sweetener in your drink or even in a punch if you are having a few friends over for an afternoon BBQ.”
