This July we’re taking a look at some of the most well-known whisky cocktails out there! Each week we will have a cocktail to fit with one of the five Scottish whisky producing regions. So stay tuned for our Friday Night Cocktails and give them a try yourself!
Lowland whiskies are known for being generally milder, lighter and often citrussy in character.
2 tsp sugar syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
splash of water
2 shots citrussy Lowland Scotch whisky
soda water (optional)
lemon peel (to garnish)
Take the orange peel (about the size of your thumb), give it a wee squeeze with your fingers before rubbing it around the insides of a whisky tumbler, then place it into the glass.
Add the sugar syrup and bitters, along with a few ice cubes. Add half one shot of the Lowland Scotch and stir for about ten seconds.
Add a bit more ice and the remaining shor of Scotch and give it another wee stir for 10-15 seconds.
To serve, garnish with lemon peel.
