Sweeten up cocktail hour with these cherry whisky drinks
Cherry Scotch & Soda
Start simple with this easy cherry mixer. Cherry juice, soda water and Ballantine’s Finest is all you need to make this cherry whisky drink. It’s a juicy remix of our classic scotch and soda recipe.
Serve with ice on a hot summer’s afternoon for a fruity refresher. Easy to mix and delicious to drink, it doesn’t get better or simpler than this.
Cherry Whisky Sour
If you’re looking for a tasty cherry cocktail, then look no further. The Cherry Whisky Sour is as cherry as they come, featuring the sweet and sour juicy fruit as the star of the show.
Cherry syrup combines with Ballantine’s Wild for an extra boost of cherryness, whilst sugar syrup and lime add a touch of tangy sweetness. Oh, and don’t forget to throw in some fresh cherries before shaking for good measure (and a delightful garnish).
Class up the cocktails at your next big night in with this fruity twist on a much-loved classic; the cherry whisky sour.
Whip up a round of cherry tonics and become the legendary owner of cocktail hour. This tangy, sweet drink mixes tonic water with our new cherry flavoured whisky that’s bursting with flavour.
Don’t be afraid to make it your way. Swap tonic for fizzy lemon soda for a playful, sugary twist on a classic serve. However you make it, do it with the free-spirited confidence of Ballantine’s Wild.
Cherry Blossom Highball
This cherry inspired drink is inspired by the delicate petals of the cherry blossom. Otherwise known as the Sakura Highball, its light, floral flavours pair beautifully with the soft, smooth notes of our 15 Year Old single malt.
Whilst you may not want to eat the tree’s fruit (a little sour for us humans), the picture-perfect bloom that appears for just a few weeks each year is perfectly suitable as a garnish. Pop your petals in ice overnight for a classy finishing touch to this delicious drink.
Cherry Blossom Highball
To stay true to the whisky, it has been lengthened with unflavoured soda to create a classic highball serve.
If you enjoy a Manhattan then the Rob Roy is a cocktail you won’t want to miss. This Scottish twist on the traditional Manhattan recipe pays homage to one of Scotland’s celebrated figures and is now a classic whisky drink.
Served with a maraschino cherry, the Rob Roy is already a cherry-ish drink. But if you’re in the mood for extra cherries, add a dash of maraschino liqueur for extra sweetness.
