Well, thanks to social distancing and the stay at home orders, we couldn’t have an in-person Austin Food Blogger Alliance Happy Hour this month but we were able to have one virtually!
I’ve had many virtual happy hours with friends and coworkers so I knew this would go on without a hitch. Ten of us joined a video conferencing session and brought our best whiskey cocktail to the happy hour. Thanks to Devils River Whiskey for sending us so many tasting bottles of their three expressions to try.
Devils River sent us the Bourbon Whiskey, Rye Whiskey and Barrel Strength to taste. They keep their unique taste and bold flavors by using pure limestone-filtered water from the Devils River!
I’m not a whiskey drinker by any means but made an Old Fashioned for the happy hour (with coaching and guidance by my husband who does enjoy whiskey). The Old Fashioned was GOOD and I’m attributing that to the Bourbon Whiskey I used! So smooth!
If you’d like to snag a bottle or three, you can have them delivered through Drizly or Instacart or check with your nearest liquor store if they have it in stock.
Have you had any virtual happy hours to stay connected to friends and family? It’s really fun! And an excuse (not like I need one) to drink. Thankfully, you’re at home and can do what you want!
