The Ginger Monkey cocktail, specially created for those with a modern, minimalism outlook on life.
Making an appearance from the famous Monkey Shoulder Cocktail Book, here’s a mix to showcase the zesty orange and spiced oak notes found in this authentic, award winning whisky. This tall refresher enhances both notes with fiery ginger beer and the zing of fresh orange. The orange makes all the difference, so don’t leave it out.
As we do, challenging traditional conventions, we’d ike to dedicate this one to Albert, the first NASA monkey to ever make a successful trip to space. He was ginger too you know.

We all know that not all gingers are created equal! Avoid catastrophe and get some decent ginger ale (or ginger beer). Or slice a freshly washed ginger. Crunch it once between your teeth to release some spicy ginger flavour and throw this into your Ginger Monkey! You might want to give everyone their own ginger slice.
