Whiskey Tango Sipper

Everyone should know how to make a great cocktail. Let us share our whiskey sipper with you.

We know the hard kombucha trend is here, but we love using kombucha in our own cocktails. This whiskey cocktail is sure to warm you up on the coldest day. Ives and Andy make these regularly in Autumn and Winter months as a happy hour treat after work or when entertaining friends on the weekend. If you are feeling fancy, you can even reserve a lemon twist to garnish the glasses and have friends asking all about your bartending skills.
