Cocktail Inspiration:

My inspiration for this cocktail was to create an homage to those first Scottish men who brought golf to America and for all those golf lovers, the perfect cocktail to drink while your watching golf or hanging out at the country club before you’re about to play golf with your friends. The cocktail itself it’s a great representation of the flavor profile of the harleston green scotch whiskey. Cheers
