You Need to Try this Scotch Cocktail

Scotch, lemon juice and honey are old friends; the delicious balance of sweet and citrus notes is simply divine — and makes a fantastic base for a spectacular cocktail.
Cue the Penicillin.

This smoky twist on a Whisky Sour has established itself as one of the most famous new-classic cocktails of the century. Its complex character delivers a whirlwind of flavor with the zing of ginger juice and the aromatic fragrance of a smoky scotch to top it all off.

And for a cocktail as famous as the Penicillin, only an equally famous scotch will do. The super smooth, perfectly balanced character of The Famous Grouse is just the trick to whipping up a round of your own at home.
