White wine sangria made with Drambuie is one of my favorite summertime cocktails! Drambuie is one of the best known Scotch Whisky Liqueurs made with honey, herbs and spices. It is delicious served on the rocks or neat. White wine sangria satisfies thirst with great depth and flavor! Drambuie should be a main stay on your bar cart!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Assorted fruits sliced (I use a lemon, lime, half of an orange, plum, peach, and several cherries)
  • 1 bottle of Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/4 cup of Cointreau
  • 1/2 cup of Drambuie
  • 3/4 cup of simple syrup
