Cocktail Recipe: Rock Island Bloody Joseph

Celebrate the hangover with a Rock Island Bloody Joseph

We aren’t huge Bloody Mary fans in this house, but it is a traditional hangover cure and we always like to try something a little different so when we were asked to try a ‘Bloody Joseph’ made with Douglas Laing’s Rock Island blended malt Scotch Whisky instead of vodka we were up for the taste test. This is a blended whisky using barrels from Arran, Islay, Jura and Orkney.

This is more enjoyable than a traditional Bloody Mary in our view.  The smokey (and sweet) whisky livens up the tart tomato juice taste so if you’re going to have a cocktail with tomato in it, then you may as well go for something that compliments the savoury flavour that we usually prefer in pizzas and the like. Rock Island, as the name implies has island whisky characteristics, so think sea salt and a bit of peat.
