Celebrate the sunniest season with one of these incredible recipes, courtesy of Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey

As the weather warms up and the days get longer, we’re excited to welcome summer. And, while we love a cozy cup of spiked hot cocoa under our favourite fuzzy blanket, we’re ready to 'skrew' it up with refreshing flavours and crisp cocktails at happy hours, garden parties and every summertime celebration in between.

This year, we’re turning to Canadian newcomer and Hollywood hard hitter: Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey. The original peanut butter whiskey offers a smooth, sweet and savoury taste, without anything artificial. While we love the nutty 70-proof spirit over ice with a salted rim (trust us!), Skrewball is the perfect addition to any delicious, dazzling cocktail that’s sure to impress guests at your upcoming soirees. 

These fun and easy-to-make concoctions offer the perfect way to kickstart the season as you celebrate everything summer.
