Whisky Mac

A Whisky Mac, or to use its full name, a Whisky Macdonald, is a cocktail made with whisky and ginger wine. The whisky is traditional expected to be a Scotch whisky, and usually a blended type. The recipes vary from those that have equal parts of both ingredient to those that use a ratio of 3 to 2 of whisky to ginger wine.

The Whisky Mac is also known as "The Golfers′ Favourite" as apparently golfers drank them to ward off the cold after a chilly round of golf.

Last Word View cocktail Recipe

Last Word

A gin-based cocktail that was listed on the menu of the Detroit Athletic Club in 1916. It fell out of favour but enjoyed a renewed popularity after being rediscovered by the bartender Murray Stenson in 2004 during his tenure at the Zig Zag Café.

The Last Word is made up of equal amounts of gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur and freshly pressed lime juice and has a pretty pale green hue. It’s a sharp, pungent drink and a good palate cleanser.
