“Balance is key in every relationship, and a good cocktail is just as important. The smooth rich flavors of a summery red sangria balance out the tang of a whiskey sour in this ‘Better Together’ combination. The perfect harmony of flavor in this cocktail is a match made in mixology heaven.” – Trisha Antonsen, chief cocktail officer at Drizly.com.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
