This riff on a Tom Collins brings a delicious summer-into-fall flavor. Here a smoky blended scotch from Compass Box is paired with a tart, floral, and slightly sweet bergamot syrup made exclusively for the esteemed whiskeymaking house.
The Glasgow Blend plays beautifully against the creamy citrus notes and light sweetness of the bergamot syrup. Add fresh lemon juice and effervescent club soda and you have a delightful balanced and refreshing highball.
Ingredients1.5 oz Compass Box Glasgow Blend Scotch Whisky
