After yesterday it was so incredibly hot that we could not motivate ourselves to write a single line at Dandy Diary, it looks very different today again. And that includes our new favorite drink.
We have asked our friends and acquaintances, consisting of mostly bartenders and drinkers, what we should drink. One of the guys was then talking about the “Chivas Cooler”. We have, of course, understood nothing but didn’t bother and drank. And indeed a lot. Delicious stuff that is.
It is thus clear: our summer drink for 2012 is the “Chivas Cooler”, which is nicely mixed as follows (original recipe from bartending and seafaring legend Philip Mollenkott):
5cl Chivas (12 years old, important!)
20 cl ginger ale
1 oz fresh lime juice
Fill with ice
Please try out.
We have ordered dozens of bottles of Chivas to be delivered home now. We have finally earned this for the first and hopefully not the last drink-post on our blog.
