Cheers to staying indoors

Our first day of lockdown also happens to be International Whisky Day … so let’s say cheers to rules being followed, counting our blessings and staying indoors.

Here are some of our favourite Monkey Shoulder and Tullamore Dew cocktails …  there really are no rules when it comes to making these cocktails, except to have the most fun possible. In isolation, of course.
