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
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!
