I thought it’d be nice to send off March with a toast to Women’s History Month. Although pink on the exterior, this scotch-based cocktail is anything but frilly.
Chivas 12 is certainly the most mixable of the spirits in this scotch’s portfolio, with its woody nose and taste of ripe fruits (I remember apples from a previous tasting experience). The combination of both sweet and tart flavors, from the below cocktail’s other ingredients, makes for a great balancing act. It’s perfect for those ladies who truly love a well-made drink.
So without any further ado, Friday’s Feature Cocktail is the Speyside Cosmopolitan.
1 ½ parts Chivas Regal 12 yo
½ part Crème de Framboise or Hiram Walker Black Raspberry Liqueur
1/3 part Fresh lime Juice
1 part Cranberry Juice
Shake ingredients with ice in a cocktail mixing glass. Fine strain into a chilled martini glass.
