This whisky cocktail embraces the ever-evolving culture of Australia. The Australian Johnnie & Lemon Highball is another whisky cocktail that was born out of the desire to combine the smoky and robust notes of the Johnnie Walker Black Label Blended Scotch Whisky with the vibrant and malty character from lemon barley cordial. Australia’s mixology culture is cultivated through innovation and experimentation, whereby mixologists seek to combine traditional whisky cocktails with a modern twist, resulting in this refreshing malty Scotch whisky cocktail.
At the heart of this whisky cocktail recipe is the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label Whisky. This Scotch whisky culture dates back to the 19th century and has since been celebrated for its well-rounded and multi-layered profile. This blended Scotch whisky offers a harmonious blend of rich smokiness with hints of sweet fruit and peat. On the nose, you would experience a sweet hint of pepper and a finish of smoky oak and vanilla.
This Scotch whisky when paired with lemon barley cordial in this whisky cocktail recipe results in a really versatile concoction that pairs elegantly with a range of culinary delights. It pairs well with seafood with its lemony undertones, making it a great option to serve with grilled fish or prawn cocktails. Consider combining it with roasted chicken or even fancy sliders for a heartier match. Because of its energizing qualities, this cocktail is a great option for outdoor events, breakfasts in the afternoon, or sophisticated cocktail parties. During warm weather, its light and zesty profile can be very cooling, providing guests with a cool respite.
