Next in our frozen cocktail recipes series, we take a look at how to make Frozen Whisky and Pear Cocktail.
When it comes to making frozen cocktails at home, whisky doesn’t often come to mind. But there are many blends and single malts that lend themselves to frozen drinks.
For the Frozen Whisky and Pear Cocktail, choose a single malt from the Highlands or Speyside regions of Scotland which tend to have a fruity character with honeyed notes and flavours of orchard fruit. The whisky is paired with fresh pear, lemon juice and a pear and fig syrup. For best results, cut the pear into chinks and freeze before use.
