Recipe: The Scarlet Scotchman

Bourbon & Scotch Whisky Cocktail | Recipe | Melbourne Cocktails

It doesn’t take a genius to work out how I arrived at the name for this cocktail.

Firstly, its remarkable colour – brilliant red with an orange overtone… I love the colour scarlet. Not only is it vibrant and fun, it’s associated with love, passion and seduction. It’s the bleeding heart of colours.

And then there’s the Scotch…


  • 30ml Glenfiddich 12 Yr Scotch Whisky
  • 15ml Bulleit Bourbon
  • 15ml Chambord
  • 10ml ginger syrup
  • Garnish: maraschino cherry


Add ice cubes and all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake to chill. Strain into cocktail glass and add maraschino cherry.
