Scotch Cocktail Recipe-Full Scottish & Cheers to 2 Years!

So tomorrow happens to be my 2 year blogging anniversary. Hooray me!! To celebrate, I am trying a new Scotch cocktail recipe called a Full Scottish. It seems rather appropriate, actually, given the focus of my blog.

I found this recipe on The Glenlivet’s web site; however, I imagine it would be good with any other Speyside (or perhaps Highland) single malt of your choice.  The Glenlivet recommends using their 15-year-old Scotch for this recipe.  Mr. C says that’s an awfully good Scotch to use in a cocktail recipe, but I told him we’re going to do it anyway!  It’s a sacrifice I must make.  🙂


Full Scottish Recipe


50 ml The Glenlivet 15-year-old

20 ml/4 tsp lemon juice

15 ml/3 tsp white/ruby port ( I used Sandeman Founder’s Reserve Ruby Port)

5 ml/1 tsp simple syrup

15 ml/3 tsp orange marmalade

Scotch cocktail recipe ingredients.

To make:

Place all ingredients, except for the port, in a cocktail shaker.  Add ice.  Shake hard and strain into a whisky tumbler filled with ice.  Gently pour in the port. Garnish with thin strips of orange or lemon zest.  Yum!

Guys, I have had so much fun writing this blog over the last two years, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your interaction and support.  Many of you really feel like friends, even though we have never actually met.  I have plenty more Scotland to share with you and don’t plan to stop writing anytime soon.  So cheers to two years and cheers to you!
