Scotch and Drambuie are always a perfect pair – which makes sense, since Drambuie is a liqueur made from scotch and sweetened with honey. Add some more honey (in the form of honey syrup), a bit of ginger wine, and some lemon juice, and you’ve got yourself a fine cocktail for a warm day.
A mild, blended scotch is best here, so as not to overpower the other delicate flavors; even a Japanese whisky, made in the Scotch style, would be lovely.
- 1 part Scotch or Japanese whisky
- ½ part Scotch whisky liqueur
- ½ part Ginger wine
- 1 part Lemon juice
- 1 tsp Honey syrup
- 2 parts Sparkling water
Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and garnish with lemons and small, delicate edible flowers like cornflowers or lavender.
