Our first day of lockdown also happened to be International Whisky Day … so we said 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.
Ingredients 50ml Monkey Shoulder Whisky, 120ml Dry Dinger Ale, One Orange Wedge
Method Fill a tall glass with ice. Pour the Monkey Shoulder and dry ginger ale, then gently stir and garnish with an orange wedge
