Creepy Cocktails for Halloween
Ardbeg has created some beastly B-Movie inspired cocktails just in time for Halloween. Ardbeg’s core expressions; Wee Beastie, An Oa, Ten Years Old, Uigeadail and Corryvreckan. These creepy colourful cocktails include Big Beast Sour, Mint Monster and Espresso Marteni.
Big Beast Sour
Inspired by a New York Sour, this fruity serve evokes oversized beasts frightening urban residents. The sour is balanced with blackcurrant and hedgerow flavours and a red wine drizzle.
• 50ml ARDBEG WEE BEASTIE
• 25ml FRESH LEMON JUICE
• 15ml SUGAR SYRUP
• ½ EGG WHITE
• 15ml RED WINE
Shake all ingredients except the red wine over cubed ice, double strain into a glass and drizzle the red wine on top
When an Espresso Martini goes out of this world… A big sky sci-fi story brings this one to life, a twist on a classic
with a soft smokiness and campfire marshmallow backdrop. Liquorice root and aniseed against warm cappuccino makes this an ideal after-dinner cocktail.
• 35ml ARDBEG TEN YEARS OLD
• 20ml ESPRESSO
• 15ml COFFEE LIQUEUR
• 10ml VANILLA SYRUP
• PINCH OF SALT
Shake all ingredients over cubed ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Drawn from hulking green B-movie monsters, this cocktail is a lively green machine in the same family as a Southside or Mojito. Briny notes of fennel, pine resin and orange are offset against sweet spices.
• 50ml ARDBEG AN OA
• 25ml FRESH LIME JUICE
• 15ml SUGAR SYRUP
• 8 FRESH MINT LEAVES
Shake all ingredients over cubed ice and double strain into glass. Garnish with a mint leaf.
A Broadway history for this take on a cocktail classic, a tale of two vermouths that balance perfectly to hero the whisky – deep, peated and peppery.
• 25ml ARDBEG CORRYVRECKAN
• 25ml SWEET VERMOUTH
• 25ml DRY VERMOUTH
Stir all ingredients over cubed ice in a mixing glass, double strain into a glass and garnish with a cherry
