Whisky Mac

Whisky Mac cocktail with blended scotch whisky and ginger wine

The Whisky Mac (short for Whisky MacDonald) is apocryphally attributed to various military members of the MacDonald family assigned to posts in India, or Ceylon, or China. There’s no real documented history of the drink, but the stories all lend themselves perfectly to the lightly-smoky, barely-spiced Victorian flavors of scotch and ginger wine.

The scotch that you use should be blended, and mild; ginger wine is the least-spicy ginger-based ingredient, and a big boggy whisky will overwhelm its complex flavors.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
