Redefine Your Cocktail Hour With 5 Singleton Plus Two Recipes

singleton cocktail recipes

To redefine cocktail hour, curators of The Singleton 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch are exploring newer and inventive ways to mix whisky with fizzy ingredients for a modern take to the luxe spirit. Mixology experts have devised the Singleton Plus Two method as a creative way for shaking up whisky cocktails that can be curated to suit the preferences of a bonafide connoisseur.

The Plus Two method is rather simple. It involves pouring equal proportions of a still and sparkling mixer into a glass along with the same proportion of whisky to develop a refreshing and vibrant cocktail. So, you would need 50 ml Singleton whisky, 50 ml ginger beer and 50 ml pineapple juice to make The Aloha.

This dynamic spin on curating whisky cocktails is inspired by a process of thinking differently about this spirit to lift it out of its reputation as a drink reserved for a ‘gentleman only’ circle and drop it into a spinning world of mixology. There are fewer rules involved in making a Plus Two and the results are absolutely mouthwatering.

While the Plus Two method essentially encourages you to experiment with different flavours and arrive at a concoction you favour most, here are a few recipes and combinations to make a Singleton Plus Two cocktail, just to get you started.
