Lazy Bartender Brings You The California Sangria

September is National Bourbon Heritage Month and today is Wine Wednesday so we have combined the two for the last day of the month to blow your socks off!
The drink is called California Sangria and here are the directions to make it at home:

4 cherries
1 1/2 oz Merlot
1 oz Bourbon
1 lemon slice

Muddle the cherries in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, wine, bourbon, and lemon slice. Shake and strain into glass.

The Lazy Bartender comes once a week and features Kate Bowyer mixing cocktails with 4 or less ingredients - because, you know, she's the Lazy Bartender and more than 4 is just too much.

Sunrise Over The Fjord – International Aquavit Day – The Lazy Bartender

The Lazy Bartender does hereby declare, that September 3rd be International Aquavit Day, in honor of the very special Scandinavian liqueur.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Kate is making a variation of the Sunrise of the Fjord which comes to us via the Vikre Distillery in Minnesota.
Here's what you'll need...

1 oz. Aquavit
1.5 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
Sparkling Wine

Shake Aquavit and juice with ice in a shaker until well chilled.

Then, pour into a glass of your choosing and top off with sparkling wine.

Enjoy responsibly with someone you love, or hate but want to love. Or dink alone if that's your thing.
