While a glass of neat, unadulterated Singleton whisky is perfect on its own, every once in a while, it's great to mix it up and dress up your dram. After all, there's no single way to sip on Singleton now, is there?
We promise you won't be disappointed when you try these alternatives out!
1. Adding ginger ale for a spiced-up aftertaste
Who knew what a difference some ginger ale could make to a glass of whisky! Pour yourself 30ml of Singleton, half a glass of ginger ale and top it up with ice. Don't forget to add a lime wedge for that perfect Insta story! Cook yourself dinner for one and voilà, it's a classy weekday in.
2. Using the appropriate whisky glass
While most people find this absolutely unnecessary, using appropriate glassware makes all the difference when it’s whisky we're talking about! Swirling your whisky in a tulip-shaped whisky glass enhances the experience right from the time you take that first sniff.
You can even turn it into a good cocktail. And, here’s how you can do that
60ml Singleton Glendullan
20ml spiced maple syrup
For the spiced syrup
100ml 100% pure maple syrup
100ml hot water
2 big peels of italian lemon or orange
1 cinnamon stick
For the syrup
Mix all the ingredients and keep it aside until it cools down to room temperature.
Remove the stick and the peels.
For the cocktail
Mix Singleton Glendullan, spiced maple.
Pour it over an ice filled glass. And, stir.
Garnish with a yellow Italian lemon or orange peel.
P.S- Orange will work great if you can’t find a real lemon. But if you use a lime, it will change the taste of the cocktail.
4. Sriracha to add more heat to your drink
Before you make a face, picture this - a cold Sunday afternoon with a Hot Toddy! All you need is a cup of Singleton, a dash of sriracha, a spoonful of honey, and some ginger, hot water and lemon. Now, say hello to your new favourite dram!
So, what are your plans on a cool winter weekend? Might we suggest a glass of Singleton whisky enjoyed in four different ways!
