On the 2nd Day of Cocktails…


…My true love gave to me some Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky.

Frances Jones from Davidson Street Public House recognized our need for a scotch cocktail, and so a scotch cocktail we shall have. The Monkey blends so well with the orange and honey while the Lagavulin floater adds depth to the cocktail

I have faith…I do.
