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.
