Burns Night cocktail recipe: Proud Mary

Published: January 16, 2018

The Proud Mary cocktail pays tribute to Robert Burns’ love interest, Mary who lived opposite the Glen Scotia distillery in Campbeltown and was born and bred in the town.

The Glen Scotia Double Cask is one of the sweetest Glen Scotia expressions, matured in first-fill bourbon barrels before being finished in Pedro- Ximénez sherry casks, providing the perfect balance of spicy fruits, sea spray and vanilla.


In a mixing glass, add 50ml of Glen Scotia Double Cask whisky.

Add the 15ml of honey water and Pedro Ximénez sherry.

Add a dash of orange bitters and stir well to blend the flavours.

Pour into a coup glass, garnish with orange zest and serve.
