The next time you’re hosting a party and someone says it’s sacrilege to make a cocktail out of Scotch, don’t let them win the argument with ‘Scotch is too good to be mixed with anything’. All you need is the right blend of ingredients that show off its flavour, and they will thank you for proving them wrong.
As rightly said, “without Cocktails, it isn’t as a party”. Where Whisky cocktails have been and are king of classic cocktails, scotch cocktails are now going to be the next big thing.
