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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
