But in saying that I do like the way some of these guys mix. Quite cool if done with flair....
Sorry I should of said Mixologists ....
Do you think it's the theatre of the thing that attracts people. Or the drink's themselves.
I do indeed enjoy whisky as part of a cocktail.
There was a video recently of Charlie MacLean on singlemalt.tv tasting a whisky based Mint Juleep at the Albannach in London, which he really enjoyed. Last time I was in Edinburgh for a wee swally I popped into a bar and asked for the same drink. It was really refreshing. Certainly not something I'm tempted to drink all night, but especially as summer is just around the corner, these are really refreshing drinks. I would also argue that they are an ideal way to introduce non believers to the wonderful world of whisky.
