Saucy Spring Cocktails

By Kyndall Krist, intern

Spring is around the corner, which means warmer temperatures, blossoming flowers, and new life all around us. It’s also a time of year that many of us enjoy relaxing outside on the patio with a refreshing drink. Along with a variety of delicious food recipes, The Sauce: A Celebration of the Flavor That Changed Everything also shares unique cocktail recipes that utilize Fischer & Wieser’s Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce, lovingly nicknamed “The Sauce.”

This fresh and simple spin on sangria is perfect for a sunny afternoon with the girls. The guys might even like it too!
