A World of Possibilities

More cocktail inspiration from Edinburgh's Bramble Bar

Ask any cocktail nerd about what they love about mixed drinks and they'll likely give a pretty long answer. After all, it's a complex topic. But after really drilling down into it, you'll likely find a deep appreciation for how the smallest of tweaks can turn a drink on its head. Whether that change is altering the ingredient proportions, ice type, or dilution; switching out the bitters or using an inventive garnish, even classic serves made with the same base spirit can vary wildly from bar to bar, bartender to bartender. Once you start being more adventurous with the core components, things get even more interesting. The increased proliferation of whiskies from across the globe – whether from established producing nations like Ireland or more recent entrants to the category like India or Taiwan – has certainly made this experimentation easier and opened up the opportunity to refresh old favourites. So the next time you fancy a whisky sour, why not eschew the Bourbon and try a Campbeltown single malt? How about a Tiki-style drink with Irish whiskey instead of rum, or an aperitivo with peated Indian single malt? Give it a go and share your results with
