ECOSSE WITH LOVE

Sparkling

Scotland in French translates as Ecosse – and this whisky cocktail recipe certainly brings together the best of Scotland and France with crisp champagne and Chivas XV, which is selectively finished in the most prized casks. These two luxurious elements make this the perfect celebratory drink, while the fresh mint and juicy grapes transform it into a wonderful summer cocktail, too.
