Flying Scotsman Cocktail

Flying Scotsman is a traditional Whisky Cocktail made by blending Whisky, Sweet Vermouth and Bitters. This cocktail was inspired by the historic Flying Scotsman Train, which ran between London and Edinburgh during the late 1800s.

This cocktail was originally made using Single Malt Whisky. However, variants include Scotch or Bourbon as the base spirit. Italian Vermouth and Angostura Bitters are used to make this delicious concoction.

  • 30ml Single Malt Whisky
  • 30ml Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 dash Bitters
  • 1/4 tsp sugar syrup
  • This cocktail is served shaken in a Martini Glass.
  • Take a cocktail shaker and fill it with lots of cracked ice.
  • Pour the mentioned quantities of Whisky and Sweet Vermouth in the shaker and add a few drops to Bitters to it.
  • Shake the ingredients well, until the drink gets a brownish hue.
  • Strain and pour the mix into a Martini Glass.
  • Cracked ice is used to chill the drink faster.
