Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! 

We think it has been well established by now that we here at The Woman At The Bar love whiskey. Specifically, American whiskey — aka, bourbon and rye. One of the frist drinks that turned us on to this delectable stuff was the classic Whiskey Sour, so it’s probably time that we cover that on the blog, don’t you think?

Advanced Prep: 4th of July Big Batch Sangria!

Well hello again, readers!

We wanted to throw a quick update up today to give you the chance to prep for tomorrow’s recipe. We will be doing a big batch 4th of July-themed cava sangria for tomorrow’s TBT classic cocktail, and we wanted to give you the ingredients you will need ahead of time so that if you want to make it for the 4th you will be ready to go. This recipe involves soaking fruit overnight, so this is your chance to get your ingredients beforehand.

We will post the actual recipe and all of the details tomorrow, but the ingredients you will need are:

  • Strawberries (1 box)
  • Blueberries (1-2 boxes)
  • Apples, Fuji or Gala are best (4)
  • Lemon (1)
  • Brandy
  • Triple Sec
  • Aperol
  • 2 bottles of Cava

You will need all of the fruit plus the brandy and triple sec for the overnight prep.

This amount of Cava will makes enough for about 5-8 people, depending on how much everyone plans to drink, so if you are having a larger or smaller event (or you anticipate some very thirsty friends) you can adjust accordingly.

There you have it! Are you as excited about this as we are? You should be — it is going to be epic.

Until then, everyone!
