Scotch is becoming the drink to have in your hand. Even the girls in Sex In The City are sipping it. I road tested a few and even managed to secure the recipes.Chivas Continental

Pour 30mls of Chivas Regal over crushed ice, fill with espresso coffee straight from an espresso machine and add a splash of sugar syrup.

Chivas Cooler

Pour 30mls Chivas Regal over crushed ice and add ginger ale to suit, squeeze a lime wedge and drop lime shell into the drink

Chivas Crush

Put 30mls Chivas Regal, 20 mls fresh lemon juice with 50mls fresh apple juice and a dash of sugar syrup. Tip with a splash of ginger beer and fresh mint leaves.

If you can’t be bothered making your own you will be able to find a selection of Chivas ‘Classic” cocktails over the winter months at the Martini Bar, W Hotel and Monkey Bar in Sydney and Purple Emerald and Chaise in Melbourne.
