Sandeman Royale is best cherished with an orange twist and good company.
Pour out 150 ml of the port and reserve the rest for another use. Add the Scotch to the remaining port in the bottle, seal and shake lightly to combine. Store in the freezer. To serve, pour about 75 ml of the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.

We’ve all raised a glass to the new year and are raring to uncork new trends that are continuing to evolve. Indeed, it seems to be a promising year when it comes to innovation.
The mint julep has been promoted as the official drink of the Kentucky Derby since 1938. A widely popular cocktail, it is said to have originated in southern United States, around the 18th century. However, this style of drink goes even further back to the 15th century Europe, where a ‘julep’ was a way to make medicine go down easy.
The Amber Moon cocktail has been around for a long time. Back in the 1800s, cracking raw eggs into alcohol was considered a ‘miner’s breakfast’. The burning sensation left after having whisky was soothed by drinking beer with raw eggs. In Amber Moon, eggs and whisky are combined and the whisky cocktail becomes a healthy drink that can cure a hangover.
