You Need To Make This Whiskey Cocktail Recipe At Your Next Dinner Party

Our new favourite drink.
Meryl Streep drinks a cocktail.

Whether it’s a dinner party or date night, right cocktail will set the tone for any event.

While you can’t go wrong with the classics—margaritas, daquiris and aperol spritzes—if you really want to wow your crowd, you need to make something new.

With the cooler weather on its way, we’re turning to a perhaps under-utilised spirit in the cocktail world—whiskey.

Whether it’s an Irish coffee or a hot toddy, here’s just something extra warming and almost therapeutic about the addition of whiskey.

This is why we can’t go past Glenlivet’s delicious Glenlivet Royale whiskey cocktail—a drink that truly offers the best of both worlds by combining single malt whiskey and crisp champagne.

With the fruity and balanced profile of The Glenlivet 12 Year Old and crisp champagne, rounded with honey and lemon, this combination is bound to please even those who swear they can’t tolerate the taste of the spirit.

In fact, we’re calling it the ultimate party drink.
