Whiskey Sour Punch – orange juice, lemon juice and bourbon some triple sec together for a fizzy and fun punch. Great for get togethers, and you can even make it ahead!
Are you a whiskey drinker? I am guessing the answer is yes if you decided to read this post. But if you aren’t a big fan, don’t worry – you still need to try this punch. I am new to the world of bourbons and whiskey. It is not something I will be drinking straight anytime soon, but if you mix it with something and sweetened it up a little, then I enjoy it. I made Peach Bourbon Limeade and Bourbon Apple Cider over the last year, so I am slowly getting accustomed to it. I hope you will give it a try too, because this whiskey sour punch is just so good!
It is hard to believe, but summer is right around the corner. And with summer comes entertaining. Parties, get togethers, barbecues, family gatherings and so much more. At all of those parties there is usually grilled food, snacks and drinks. Often times in the summer (at least with my friends) the drinks consist of a cooler full of beer. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good beer, but I also like to mix it up. A fun and fruity punch is exactly what I have in mind sometimes.
I brought this whiskey sour punch to a friends house recently. I will not admit how quickly it disappeared, and how few people were drinking it. It has everything I look for in a good cocktail – fruity and fizzy. It is very simple to make as well. You can make most of it ahead of time, and then just add the fizzy part right before you are ready to serve. Or even make them individually, and just top each glass with the sparkling water. This whiskey sour punch will definitely please all of your guests!
