Drambuie creates royal cocktail

17 November, 2010

Whisky liqueur brand Drambuie has created a cocktail to celebrate the announcement of Prince William’s engagement to Kate Middleton.

At the centre of the Engaging Dram, created by brand ambassador Jamie Stephenson, is Drambuie’s Royal Legacy 1745 expression.

Stephenson said: “The engagement is such big news I was keen to do something to celebrate, and what better way than with a special dram of Drambuie, an iconic drink with historic Royal links.”

According to the brand, its blend of aged scotch whiskies, heather honey, herbs and spices was first created 260 years ago for 18th century Scottish royal Bonnie Prince Charlie.

The cocktail is a mix of 20ml Drambuie Royal Legacy 1745, 5ml lemon juice, a dash of orange bitters and 100ml rosé champagne, all stirred in a mixing glass and poured into a chilled flute. Garnish with a twist of orange.

Bar food's blurred lines

Once upon a time pubs and bars were somewhere you went with the sole purpose of getting pissed and there wasn’t a knife and fork in sight, just a packet of dry roasted nuts.
