Light, sweet and youthful. Crabbie’s Yardhead, a non aged statement #whisky from Edinburgh-based John Crabbie & Co., was released with the intention of promoting single malt malt use within mixed drink culture especially in a time of an ever growing demand for all things #whiskey.  As there are no rules here we decided to follow suit by including the first ever mixed #cocktail to include in todays #WhiskyAndDonuts pairing.

We must admit our knowledge and experience in cocktails has never proceeded beyond the novice level.  Indeed the 101 #OldFashioned or an expression of choice over ice accompanied by something fizzy has been in our glass before but never have we taken the deep dive into the world of mixology and classic cocktailing! Scraping our singular spirit consuming mentality,  today we attempt the classic turn of the century #NewYork #RobRoy (#Scotch #Manhattan). Thanks to a quick stop at our local supply house The Mixing Glass we were able to build the perfect rendition.  Armed with Carpano Antica Formula Sweet #Vermouth, Angostura aromatic bitters and #Luxardo maraschino cherries, the expression was enhanced while still showcasing its bright vanilla and citrus zest.

Thanks to Crafted #Donuts in #OrangeCounty, this Almond Joy creation adds just enough sweetness and a healthy amount of buttery base to round out this pairing.  Shredded coconut, fresh shaved almonds and milk @chocolate drizzle over an airy hoop is definitely opposing on the color wheel with the cocktail but once combined it makes sense.  Perhaps it completes the elements to construct this alternative sweet float but you will just have to trust us its another win for us!

It may be some time before you see another mixed drink on our platform but this was a fun experiment that certainly has us reconsidering our peripheral.

Until next time, #Slainte
