SAN ANTONIO, June 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
"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 flavors of summer fruits like raspberry and lemon for something light and fresh," said Hundelt.
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 a 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," said Larson.
