Whisky, Vermouth, bitters, shake it all about and...

Whyte and Mackay have introduced a cocktail, called The Spirit of the Water, to celebrate their assocation with the Earls Court Boat Show.

They call the drink a “classic whisky cocktail to be elegantly served in an Art Deco martini glass”.

Understandably, they advise it is made using Whyte & Mackay’s own blended Special double matured whisky.

Garnish: Maraschino cherry with orange twist.
Method: Stir all ingredients with ice and fine strain into a chilled glass.
