The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is an international community of whisky lovers, where members have access to some of the finest rare and limited edition whiskies in the world. My guest this week is Paul Skipworth, former CEO of Ardbeg and Glenmorangie, and now Chairman of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, I caught up with Paul last month while he was in town briefly to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Society at the British Consul General's Residence in Los Angeles.
The cocktail recipe this week is one of my favorite ways to enjoy scotch when I’m not having it on its own - in a Whisky Highball.
The key to a quality made whisky highball is quality ice, a chilled highball glass and the proportions that work for you. I like 2 oz of whisky to 4-5 ounce of soda, and a lemon wedge. You can add mint or other garnishes as you would a gin and tonic. Listen to Paul Skipworth and drink it how you like it!
2 oz Scotch whisky
4-5 oz club soda
Add both the whisky and the soda to an an ice filled highball glass that has been well chilled, stir gently and garnish.
