Celebrate International Whisky Day with Monkey Shoulder

We all know what to do when life gives us lemons, but what about when life gives you another citrus fruit? When life gives you oranges, we suggest you make something more than marmalade.

Monkey Shoulder scotch blended malt whisky is made for mixing, and challenges you to put those oranges to good use by mixing things up with a refreshing Ginger Monkey or Lazy Old Fashioned cocktail, it is International Whisky Day after all!

There really are no rules when it comes to drinking Monkey Shoulder, except to have the most fun possible…in isolation of course.
