SPICED ORANGE HIGHBALL

Fresh

Using different syrups is one way to create variety within a scotch and soda drink, but did you know you can also use flavoured teas? This Spiced Orange Highball uses orange and cinnamon tea to add a touch of spice and citrus – perfect when drunk with Chivas 18, which has notes of sticky orange marmalade.
