peach whisky smash
Add some peaches on the grill and make a delicious Peach Whisky Smash! When you grill fruit, their natural sugars begin to caramelize making for a sweeter drink.
  • 1 large peach – halved, pit removed, and skin on
  • ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 5 leaves fresh mint or rosemary
  • 2 ounces of simple syrup
  • 4 ounces of ginger ale, or more to taste
  • 3 ounces of Texas Crown Whisky
  • Ice
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. When the grill is hot, close lid and allow to heat, 5 minutes. Place peach halves and lemon, cut-side down, in sugar until coated. Place on the grill; cook until fruits are soft, about 5 minutes. Cool on a cutting board, about 1 minute. Cut peach into slices with a knife; reserve 2 for garnish. Place remaining peach, mint or rosemary leaves, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker; juice lemon into the shaker. Gently muddle with a cocktail muddler. Pour in whisky and ice, cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into a chilled glass; top off with ginger ale, and garnish with grilled peach slices and lemon.

  • 1.25 ounces of Texas Crown Whisky
  • 1 ounce of honey syrup (equal parts honey and water)
  • 3 pieces of cucumber
  • 1 wedge of lemon
  • 1 splash of club soda
  • Ice
In a mixing glass, muddle cucumber, lemon wedges and honey syrup. Add the whisky and ice. Stir vigorously with a bar spoon. Strain into an ice filled rocks glass and top with club soda. Garnish with a cucumber wheel and lemon wedge.

Texas Whisky n’ Wine Sangria

Add a little Texas kick to your sangria with some Texas Crown Whisky! This make ahead recipe is great for serving large groups at your next party.
  • 1 bottle of Spanish red wine
  • ½ cup of Texas Crown Whisky
  • 1 ½ cups of orange juice
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 2 pears, sliced
  • 3 oranges, sliced. Extra for garnish
Add 1 bottle red wine, ½ cup whisky, and 1½ cups of orange juice to a drink dispenser or pitcher. You can top off with more wine, whisky, or orange juice to taste. Add ¼ cup sugar to the drink dispenser and stir. Cut your fruit into slices and add to the pitcher or drink dispenser. Place the pitcher or dispenser in the fridge and let sit for at least 2 hours, or if you have more time for up to 4 to 8 hours. Sangria tastes best after you let the flavors of the fruit and alcohol sit for several hours in the fridge. This helps mix all the flavors for a delicious fruity taste! Once ready, serve into glasses, garnish with extra fruit, and enjoy!
