Top Five – Warm Winter Cocktails

The Scotch Whisky one – Campbeltown Cocktail
By Mike Aikman, Bramble, Edinburgh
The Campbeltown cocktail may not be hot, but is still a winter warmer. The key spirit here is Scotch Whisky, notoriously difficult to mix, something that prompted Aikman to take up the challenge. The result? A dangerously heady concoction of cherry liqueur, green chartreuse and Scotch Whisky from the Campbeltown region.
Ingredients –
45ml Springbank 10 Year Old Whisky,
20ml Cherry Heering,
10ml Green Chartreuse
Method –
Add all ingredients into mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir all ingredients for approximately one minute. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
