When the weather cools down, the thought of bundling up at home with a warming whisky seems mighty tempting.
This month, Earl’s Juke Joint and Jacoby’s in Sydney’s inner west will be mixing and delivering cocktails made with The Balvenie whisky. These aren’t your average bottled cocktails: while single-malt whisky isn’t often served mixed (for fear of overpowering its more subtle notes) this selection is about using premium ingredients for a premium result.
From Earl’s, you can order the Whisky Mac – a cocktail of whisky and ginger wine – that uses the honeyed Balvenie 12-year-old DoubleWood to play off the ginger and citrus notes. For $24 you can get a serving for two people.
From Jacoby’s you can order a cocktail that’ll inspire you to start planning your next tropical holiday – even if it is a while down the track. Using Balvenie’s 14-year-old Caribbean Cask (finished in rum barrels to give it extra sweetness and rich vanilla notes) the bar will serve up a special single-malt Pina Colada for $18 a pop.
