The Gleneagles 2014 cocktail

One of golf's most prestigious tournaments, the Ryder Cup, is about to take place in Chicago; but in two years (the tournament's every two years), it'll be returning to an old location: the Gleneagles hotel in Scotland. As the golf world gets ready for another match-up, the Gleaneagles' hotel bar manager, Paul Danskin, has mixed up a whiskey cocktial to celebrate the Ryder Cup — and prepare for its return to Scotland. Golf fan or not, it's an easy sip for fall.

Ingredients

  • 8 1/2  Ounces  water
  • 1 1/2  Ounce  Johnnie Walker Platinum
  • 1/2  Ounce  ginger wine
  • 3/4  Ounces  cloudy apple juice
  • cinnamon sticks
  • 3-4  cloves
  • Zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime
  • 2-3  apple slices

Directions

At the heart of this drink is an ice cube with a spicy twist. First, add 250 ml of water to a pan and bring to a boil. Then add the cinnamon sticks, cloves, and zest. Allow this mixture to simmer for ½ an hour, then cool and add to ice cube trays. Once the ice cubes are frozen, place 1 in an Old Fashioned glass.

To the glass, add the whiskey and ginger wine, then top up with apple juice. Garnish with apple slices, and enjoy!

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
