Rhapsody In Gold


Scotch on the beach? You betcha! Johnnie Walker Blue Label showcases a dizzying blend of whiskies from all corners of Scotland. With that comes a wide breadth of flavors and aromas, including dried fruit, tropical and floral notes. We’ve created this tropical winter highball to highlight the remarkable Whisky, speak to winter-fruit seasonality and offer a bit of escapism.


  • 1.75 oz Johnnie Walker Blue Label
  • 0.25 oz Zacapa No. 23 Rum
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • 0.75 oz Golden Spice Syrup*
  • 1.5 oz Sidral Soda


Combine Blue Label, Rum, Lemon Juice and Golden Spice Syrup in a shaker with crushed ice. Shake lightly and strain over crushed ice into a highball. Top with Sidral Soda and garnish with a bouquet of fresh mint.
*Golden Spice Syrup: Blend 1oz Turmeric per 24oz simple syrup.

Glassware: Highball / Collins
Garnish: Bouquet of fresh mint

Sleight of Hand


An elegant and surprising serve with a dramatic garnish. The Sleight of Hand presents as a classic Old Fashioned style cocktail, but reveals itself with the first sip. Dried fruit, bright acidity and all of the complexity of Johnnie Walker Blue Label make for a perfect marriage. A custom etched, perfect ice block keeps the cocktail at the ideal temperature, while an ethereal citrus aroma drifts down the glass.


1.75 oz Johnnie Walker Blue Label

0.5 oz Cocchi di Torino

0.5 oz Ume (plum) Extract

0.25 oz PX Sherry

1 oz Water

0.4g Lemon Juice


Combine all ingredients into a batched cocktail ahead of time. Pour 3 ½ oz into a mixing glass with ice. Stir to chill and pour over ice into a double old fashioned glass.

Glassware: Rocks
Garnish: N/A

The 75th, an Espresso Martini


The perennial favorite, Espresso Martini, takes a trip to Scotland. Once you try this elegant, warming and complex combination, you may never go back. Johnnie Walker Blue Label and coffee are a match made in heaven. With a nod to January flavors, we’ve upped the ante with the spiced notes of ginger-snap and pleasantly bitter black strap molasses.


  • 1.5 oz Johnnie Walker Blue Label
  • 1 oz Ginger Snap Spiced Espresso*
  • 0.75 oz Black Strap Molasses (1:1, molasses:water)
  • 1 dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters
  • 2 dashes Vegan Foamer


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake and double strain into a chilled coupe.
*Ginger Snap Spiced Espresso: As coffee is brewing, add broken ceylon cinnamon sticks and dried ginger to steep for 20 mins. Strain away solids and chill for use.

Glassware: Coupe
Garnish: N/A
