Friday Night Cocktail by MermaidMary:
The team at Glenmorangie have given us today’s cocktail to promote their special Father’s Day gift pack The Glenmorangie Taster Pack, which has 4 x100ml bottles of Glenmorangie single malt in a special presentation box for $66. A great way to get your dad a premium product without breaking the bank.

Want to impress dad even more? Make him his beautiful classic whisky cocktail too.

The Old Fashioned is the big daddy of the classic cocktails & is typical of taking a quality spirit & adding very little else, the idea being to enhance the spirit, not cover it up or overpower it.

Old Fashioned:
50mls Glenmorangie Original (Ten Year Old)
4 Dashes Angostura Bitters
A spoon of sugar

Add all of ingredients into a heavy bottomed short glass
Stir well to disolve the sugar
Add ice (A large block is ideal if you have one)
Stir again to chill the drink & dilute it slightly
Finish with an orange twist and twist it over the glass to release the oils in the skin of the orange
