Halloween Happy Hour: Whiskey Patch

How is it possible that Halloween is a week away? This year has flown by! In the spirit of all things spooky, I was tasked by Drizly to create a Halloween cocktail using my favorite Halloween candy. Of course, I immediately reached for Sour Patch Kids and put on my creative thinking hat. The result? A Whiskey Patch, my take on a traditional Whiskey Sour, but a little extra punch for a Halloween Happy Hour!
