When I drink Whiskey, I like it neat. In Shaun’s write up of this cocktail on his site, he had written, “there are some mass produced brands out there that are made to be part of a cocktail”. That is fact, and when I am out on the town, a fantastic cocktail with Whiskey as the main ingredient is always my first choice.
Silent Third Cocktail
- 2 ounces Scotch Whisky
- 1 ounce Cointreau
- Juice of 1 Lemon
Method: In a mixing glass filled with ice, add the scotch and cointreau. Squeeze in two halves of lemon. Cap off with a tin and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon.
This drink is sometimes made with equal parts of each ingredient, but in my opinion, it hides too much of the base ingredient when doing it this way. Here’s the way I like to make this scotch whisky cocktail. I hope you enjoy.
