Popular Scotch Whisky Cocktails

Popular Scotch Whisky Cocktails


Whisky CocktailThere is no set rule for which type of whisky should be used in a whisky cocktail. Although true devotees of whisky could not bring themselves to  use a Scotch single malt whisky in a cocktail. They believe a single malt should be drunk alone to fully appreciate and savour the whisky.

You will find blended whisky mix well in cocktails and is the most commonly used whisky in whisky cocktails. The best advice I can give is to use a whisky which you know you already enjoy, whether its a single malt or a blended whisky. Anyway listed below are some of the more popular drinks and cocktails made with Scotch whisky, enjoy.

Scotch Tom Collins

Scotch Whisky Toddy

  • Add enough boiling water to dissolve sugar.

In Scotland the Scotch Whisky Toddy is commonly referred to simply as a "Hot Toddy". A very pleasant warming drink on a cold evening, of which there are many in Scotland. Many Scots will often take a Hot Toddy to ease the symptoms of a common cold. Being a Scotsman myself I have taken this all my life and would swear by it as a cold remedy or as a nice little winter warmer.
