Asda have announced the release of a new range of premium aged whisky which will be available at more affordable prices. Traditionally an extremely expensive product due to the rarity and age of the whiskies used in the aging process, these blends usually retail for over £200. Released as part of the Asda Extra Special range is a 25-year old Whisky for £50 and a 30-year old Whisky for £60. To celebrate Asda have sent me a selection of Whisky Cocktail recipes which are perfect for anyone celebrating Burns Night tonight.
Rub a piece of orange peel on the side of a glass. Add a pinch of sugar, 3 dashes Anbostura bitters, 2 shots whisky and 3 ice cubes. Serve garnished with a twist of lemon peel.
Pour 2 shots whisky and 1 shot Drambuie over ice. Serve with a twist of lemon peel. This is the classic recipe, but if you prefer a sweet cocktail, add a dash more Drambuie according to your taste.
Put 2 shots whisky, 1 raw egg white, the juice of 1 lemon, ¼ tsp sugar, and 1 drop vanilla extract into a cocktail shaker. Shake, add a dash of Angostura bitters, then shake again. Pour over ice and serve.
Pour 2 shots whisky, 1 shot red vermouth, a dash of Angostura bitters and 1 tsp Cocktail Syrup Grenadine into a shaker. Stir, add ice then strain into a glass.
Serve with a cherry and a twist of orange peel.
Asda Extra Special Whiskey 25yr old and 30yr old blends will be available at 207 Asda Stores nationwide and online at www.ASDA.com.
