It seems that every food and beverage has its designated “day” on the calendar. Distilled spirits are part of the action as well and today, July 27, just happens to be a day set aside to honor America’s favorite Scottish import. It’s National Scotch Day, the perfect excuse to grab that favorite bottle of single malt from the liquor shelf and rediscover the great taste that makes scotch one of the world’s finest distilled spirits.
Some prefer to drink scotch neat and enjoy the complex flavors that make this liquor so special. For National Scotch Day, why not liven things up a little bit with a scotch- based cocktail? Laphroaig, a distillery that has been producing great scotch for 200 years, has simple yet delicious recipes made with scotch, one of which includes hefeweizen beer. Here are two drinks I recommend for this National Scotch Day, 2015:
- 1 part Laphroaig® 10 YO
- 3 Parts iced green tea
- 1 Part pineapple juice
- 1 part Laphroaig® 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- 4 parts Hefeweizen or wheat beer
- Splash of fresh orange juice
