Here’s Johnnie: whisky cocktails for Christmas

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Another Story Fizz

Johnnie Walker Blue Label? Don’t mind if we do thank you very much – ’tis the season to be jolly after all. After sipping it neat from the solid but sinuous rocks glasses designed to show off this superior blended Scotch whisky to perfection, we’ll be enjoying it in these two cocktails, one a take on the classic Old Fashioned, the other a twist on the Morning Glory Fizz…

35ml Johnnie Walker Blue Label Blended Scotch Whisky
5ml Mozart Chocolate Liqueur
7.5ml Dubonnet
1 pinch fresh vanilla grain
2 dashes orange bitters
Orange zest
Handful of finely grated tonka bean

Gently stir all the ingredients together in a rocks glass, adding the whisky in last poured over large ice cubes. Garnish with orange zest, vanilla pod and finely grated tonka bean.
