Ginger Monkey

What You’ll Need

50 ml of Monkey Shoulder triple blended malt Scotch whiskey

80 ml of dry ginger ale

Fresh orange wedge

Making It

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.

Tips

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. 

Irish Manhattan

What You’ll Need

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

Making It

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.
