Fair Isle Cocktail

Scotch plays well with Cocchi Barolo Chinato. The name of the digestif isn't just fun to say; it's one of the world's finest digestivos infused with cinchona, ginger & rhubarb. A fortified nebbiolo wine infused with tasty stuff and a little sugar make it amazing in cocktails like the Scotch based Fair Isle. Learn more about Vitamix products: commercial.vitamix.com.

Blinker #3 Cocktail
20 Nov 12 0
The original Blinker cocktail dates back to at least the 1930's and was originally made with rye whiskey, fresh grapefruit juice and grenadine. Back in the day, when grenadine was a more crafted product, it was made from pomegranates. Ted Haigh, also known as "Dr. Cocktail," put his spin on it a few years back by substituting raspberry syrup for the grenadine. My variation, which I've named #3, I switched up the proportions a bit and added PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur in for a great sweet and tart balance, thus a little throwback to the original days of grenadine.
