Cocktail Inspiration:

Spending time in the countryside, sitting on a porch overlooking fields of green after a fresh rain shower, I felt as if I was teleported to a morning in the green pastures of Scotland… It could have been the smoking cigar, or perhaps the scotch in my tea… We laughed and imagined this is what it must be like to have breakfast in Scotland.
