My husband and I recently headed to Social Wine Bar for the Crown Royal Maple Whisky tasting and we were both immediately hooked! As a gal who tends to enjoy her wine (who am I kidding, I love my wine), I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. Being from the Crown Royal family, I naturally knew it would go down smooth but the sweet maple flavor gives it a cozy feeling that makes you keep wanting more. All I could keep thinking was, 'This will be the perfect addition to next year's tailgating must-haves!' Brian, my husband, is completely and utterly in love. The first thing he asks when we stop into one of the many local watering holes around town is, 'Do you have Crown Royal Maple?' We've only run across it at one other establishment but if I know my husband, he'll have it all over the city in no time! So keep your eye out as it slowly takes over the Lowcountry!
So, why am I sharing this on A Lowcountry Wedding you might ask? Well, to put it simply, Crown Royal Maple makes the perfect signature drink for your upcoming Southern bash...and boy do I mean perfect! It's no secret most of ladies do love something to sip on something a little girly but I think you'll quickly fall in love with these two recipes that will be a huge hit with the guys and gals on your guest list!
