Whisky Cocktail: Loretto Limonade


Share on Pinterest

This one usually goes down nicely with the ladies at any time or with pretty much anyone after a big meal when you want something sweet. While the recipe calls for a shaker, don’t let that put you off if you don’t have one, a thermos will do just fine.

You’ll need:

  • 2 parts Bourbon (as ever, Benchmark is good for the purpose)
  • 1 part Midori (melon liqueur, available at most supermarkets)
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • 3 parts apple juice
  • Chilled ginger beer (not ale!)
  • A tall glass
  • A fair bit of ice


Fill your shaker (thermos/whatever other creative solution you’ve come up with) about half way up with ice then add everything but the ginger beer and give it a good old shake. Grab 2-3 ice cubes for the tall glass then strain the contents of your shaker into the glass and top up with the ginger beer.

About Whisky Critic

My name is Martin and I live in Scotland. I love fine things in life, such as gourmet food, travelling around the world and, last but not least, whisky (naturally, I’m partial to a tipple of whiskey or bourbon as well). I have tasted hundreds of whiskies during the recent years and I finally decided to share my experience.
