Ok, so we do a loooot of shouting out the amazing ladies in this community of ours, but today it’s all about the MEN! Furthermore, it’s all about the DADS! The unsung heroes of car troubles, home renovations, sports knowledge, and BOURBON! Which is why today, we’re celebrating all our favorite dads with our delicious Chalkboard Cabernet Sour!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 oz bourbon
3/4 oz simple syrup
1 oz fresh lemon juice
Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
And here’s how you make it:
In a shaker, combine your bourbon, simple syrup, lemon juice, and ice. Shake. In a glass of ice, pour 3/4 the way up. Finally, take a bar spoon over the glass and pour your cabernet. Sip, sip, annnnd enjoy!
And since we know the mama’s will be the ones making this drink for their men (or at least we think they should be!), go ahead and pour one for yourself, too, and have a drink with the daddy in your life!

Happy Father’s Day, Dads! Cheers to you!
Friends! Happy JUNE! Hopefully you’ve been able to relax and enjoy some of the sunshine that we have all so desperately needed! We’re coming at you today with something a little different — as you know, we’re ALLLL about the mamas around here, but this weekend we’re putting all our energy toward showing love to the DADS! And for that reason, we have the perfect drink to spoil your dad, or baby daddy, or family member or friend who’s a dad! May we introduce, The Corks & Cheers Man Makers!
This DELICIOUS wine mixer was 100% created with our men in mind — and we went a route that we don’t go very often. We are adding BOURBON to our favorite red today! And listen, y’all… this one is AMAZING. I won’t lie, I think we were a little hesitant to try mixing bourbon and red wine, but we just might do it forever and ever now…this combo is amazing and will have the men in your life asking for more.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
Shot of Makers Mark bourbon
1 Tbsp Simple Syrup
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
And here’s how you do it:
You know we like to keep things simple…and this one delivers. In a glass (on the rocks if that’s what you fancy), combine your simple syrup, lemon juice, and Makers. Finish by topping with Cabernet. Then give your man the remote, and tell him to enjoy!
It really is that easy and like I mentioned, we were all so pleasantly surprised by the flavor of this one. It is delicious! Would be amazing paired with a nice steak or some seared salmon… or honestly just by itself! Regardless of how you (or Dad) enjoy it, we think it will be an instant favorite!

Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing dads out there! We are grateful for you and your influence on the ones you get to (or got to!) raise!
