A whiskey adventure for you and me.
2 bottles red wine (I like syrah or shiraz, but use what you love. Rose would be wonderful here as well!)
1 cup good quality bourbon
2 tablespoons old fashioned bitters
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/3 cup orange liqueur
2 oranges, thinly sliced
2 lemons, thinly sliced
2 limes, thinly sliced
1 cup cherries, pitted and roughly chopped or smashed
2 cups sparkling water (I used San Pellegrino sparkling blood orange, which I recommend if you can find it!)
In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients except the sparkling water.
Cover and refrigerate at least four hours for the flavors to meld together. Overnight is even better.
To serve, top off with sparkling water.
