Making an appearance from the famous Monkey Shoulder Cocktail Book, here’s a mix to showcase the zesty orange and spiced oak notes found in this authentic, award winning whisky. 

This tall refresher enhances both notes with fiery ginger beer and the zing of fresh orange. The orange makes all the difference, so don’t leave it out.

Monkey Shoulder like to dedicate this one to Albert, the first NASA monkey to ever make a successful trip to space. He was ginger too you. Cheers Albert! 


50 ml of Monkey Shoulder triple blended malt Scotch whisky

80 ml of Dry Ginger Ale

Fresh Orange Wedge

Fill long glass with ice

Add ingredients into glass and gently stir

Garnish with orange wedge.

Fill the glass with ice & add the Monkey Shoulder. Pour over the ginger ale & slowly stir (never shake) to mix. Top off with a juicy fresh orange wedge and you’re ready for lift off.

We all know that not all gingers are created equal, so avoid catastrophe and get some decent ginger ale (or ginger beer). 

Or slice a freshly washed ginger. Crunch it once between your teeth to release some spicy ginger flavour and throw this into your cocktail.

You might want to give everyone their own ginger slice.

Great cocktails start with responsible measuring.
