This cocktail recipe was created for the Demijohn 2008 Staff Christmas night out by Alastair Simpson at which a cocktail competition was held between our Edinburgh and Glasgow shops. The Glasgow cocktail was called a Strawberry Moscow Mule.
Although a draw was declared on the night, your comments on the success of each recipe would be much appreciated and can be posted online if witty enough!
- 1/2 measure 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 58.1%
- 2 measures Demijohnnie Gin 50%
- 1 measure Apricot Brandy Liqueur 17%
The ingredients of this cocktail can be bought as our Scottish Rose Gift Set.
Take 2 classic Martini glasses, evenly split the 1/2 measure of 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 58.1% between the 2 glasses. Tilt each glass and spin slowly to entirely coat the inside of the glass with a film of the whisky and discard the remainder.
Then take a Cocktail Shaker, and fill with ice. Add 2 measures of Demijohnnie Gin 50% and a single measure of Apricot Brandy Liqueur 17%. Shake vigorously and then strain evenly into the 2 prepared glasses to remove the ice. To finish the cocktail, drop in a whole fresh bramble (blackberry) and then serve.
