Spring may be three days away but winter just simply doesn’t want to go away and I feel like I’ve just had about enough of it. If you live in a state that has seen this brutal winter, then you understand. No better way to pretend it’s nice and warm outside than, enjoying a nice summery cocktail in my extremely hot apartment since I can’t really regulate my heat.
Now, there is no rulebook that says you can only make this cocktail in the summer, but this light and very tasty Auchentoshan whisky cocktail, which I think you will love, is the perfect summer drink.
While doing a little researching not too long ago, I stumbled across this whisky cocktail on the Auchentoshan website using their Auchentoshan Classic. For each member of their range they have a cocktail recipe listed or a suggested way to drink it, which to me is a brilliant idea (http://www.auchentoshan.com/enjoy-me/serves/cocktail/whisky-a-lolo.aspx). So if you too want to pretend it’s summer or actually make it when the warm weather arrives, here is what you’ll need.
50 ml Auchentoshan Classic
75 ml ginger beer
Mixture of fresh fruit – mint, apple, fresh lime, lemons and oranges
What’s great is that you can make this in a large pitcher and it could be a wonderful outdoor party cocktail. See my video to see how it’s made.
