Sweet black cherries, Lillet Blanc, and fresh grapefruit juice make a bright, fruity showcase for Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey that is lengthened and strengthened by AVEC Hibiscus and Pomegranate. When ingredients enhance a base spirit versus covering it up, it is a beautiful thing. Fresh grapefruit peel completes the drink, making this a light and refreshing sensory experience.
