Angus Collins

A sour based on the huge peat-smoke that’s typical of southern Islay whisky, the powerful flavour, attractive garnishes and tasty mixers of this cocktail make it the ideal party serve.

    Using a jigger, measure 50ml Single Malt Whisky, 50ml sour mix and 17.5ml orange juice into the shaker.

    Shake the mixture vigorously until the surface of the cocktail shaker feels chilled. Use a cocktail strainer to strain the liquid into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Top up with 25ml of carbonated water.
