This drink was the winner of the Garden Party Cocktail Competition in Edinburgh. It’s a complex drink with a great contrast between the floral Caorunn gin and the bite of the whisky.
Gin tends to be a summer drink in my household, but this has changed my mind. The thistle gives it an autumn look, but the pink lets us hold on to the summer just a little bit longer. Besides, Indian Summer is out there somewhere, and a great time of the year.
A really cool thing at the Caorunn, you can email this image and recipe to a friend. It’s all set up and easy to do–your name, their email address. Could be fun. We’ll bring you more Caorunn cocktails as we wind down to winter.

• 20ml Glenlivet
• 20ml Raspberry gomme (gum)
