Cinco de Laphroaig®
- 1.5 parts Laphroaig® 10 Year Old
- Mexican Cola
- Lime Wedge
Method: Pour the Laphroaig® 10 Year Old into a Collins glass with ice. Top with Mexican Cola and garnish with a wedge of lime.
Why it works: The smokiness of the whisky is complemented by the sweet flavors in the Mexican Cola. Caramel, cane sugar and the citrus aspects of the cola work alongside the brininess and the underlying tones of the whisky, helping to turn the smokiness of the whisky into a supporting partner instead of dominating the glass.
