Maple-Red Wine Sour

Shake up your cocktail routine with a Maple-Red Wine Sour, our Canadian twist on the classic Whisky Sour recipe with a red wine float. The Glenlivet 12 Year Old's smooth whisky taste along with wine, lemon juice, and just enough maple syrup to add a hint of sweetness, make for a tangy, unique sip.
