Salute Women’s Month With A Cocktail
Why don’t you and your friends continue to celebrate the fabulousness that you are by making these cocktails drinks at home?
50 ml of Monkey Shoulder triple blended malt Scotch whiskey
80 ml of dry ginger ale
Fresh orange wedge
Fill long glass with ice. Add ingredients into glass and gently stir. Garnish with orange wedge. Fill the glass with ice and add the whiskey. Pour over the ginger ale and slowly stir (never shake) to mix. Top off with a juicy fresh orange wedge and you’re ready for lift off.
Not all gingers are created equal! Avoid catastrophe and get some decent ginger ale, ginger beer, or slice a freshly washed ginger. Crunch it once between your teeth to release some spicy ginger flavour and throw this into your Ginger Monkey! You might want to give everyone their own ginger slice.
50 ml Tullamore D.E.W. Original Irish Whiskey
15 ml sweet vermouth
5 ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
Dashes of Angostura
Dashes of orange bitters
1 maraschino cherry
Stir all liquid ingredients together quickly over ice. Pour into a chilled coupette glass, zest an orange twist over the surface of the drink, spiral and drop in to the glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Always remember, great cocktails start with responsible measuring.
