Scotch Based Cocktails

Hello All,

    How did the weekend go? Well, everything at my end ain’t so cool. We are facing some issues with our web server and orders are pending with clients getting apprehensive about delivery dates. Well, after trying to solve the problem from the past two days, I just decided to unwind a little and relax by surfing about my favourite topics which include Scotch, One Piece and Guns.
Finest Scotch

    After enjoying a few vodka based cocktails, I decided to find a good scotch based cocktail. We are suggesting Black Dog, the finest scotch in India for the cocktails. So, here are two cocktails which look good. I am gonna share the recipe today and a review of how they are sometime later.


Blood and Sand Cocktail
Makes: 1 drink

  • 3/4 - 1 ounce Scotch (Our suggestion: Black Dog Reserve)
  • 3/4 ounce freshly-squeezed orange juice 
  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth 
  • 3/4 ounce Heering

  1. Shake all ingredients together with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. 
  2.  Garnish with a flamed orange peel. To do this, peel a nice, wide slice of orange. Run a flame gently back and forth over the rind side, releasing the oils. With the flame still going, gently squeeze the peel into the flame over your glass. This should send the oils bursting into your drink, replete with flame. 
  3. Run the peel around the rim of the glass and discard.


Mamie Taylor Cocktail

Scotch Cocktail
  • 2 oz. blended Scotch (Our Suggestion Black Dog Deluxe)
  • Juice of half a lime 
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters 
  • Ginger beer 
  • 1 hunk of candied ginger
  1. Fill a high-ball glass with ice
  2. Add ingredients in the above order (you should just be topping off the glass with the ginger beer)
  3. Gently stir
  4. Garnish with the ginger candy on a toothpick.
  5. Enjoy!


    Ever tried a scotch based cocktail? How do they feel? What is so cool about them? Why aren’t they so famous like the vodka based ones?  Do let us know.
