Scotch In Holiday Style

Holiday Cocktails are the perfect way to toast to festive family and friend time. Thus one of my favorite things to do, for both Christmas and New Years, is create a signature holiday drink that will get the party started! This year I have two must-make cocktails up my sleeve tanks to Rye On The Road. Both feature Glenfiddich's latest expression, Glenfiddich 14YO Bourbon Barrel Reserve, which I will tell you is a great addition to their single malt family for it is an ideal pick for a new scotch drinker like moi who is still developing a pallet but can appreciate quality taste. Check out the recipes below and I hope you have fun making one of these for Christmas dinner and or New Years Eve happy hour!!!
