For our Christmas drink this year, I will be preparing a Ginger-Pear martini for the family (coming soon).  So after buying some Canton Ginger Liqueur, the challenge is to find another drink that could “pear” with it!  Enter the Debonair Cocktail.

  • 2 ounces single malt scotch (the good stuff)
  • 1 ounce Canton Ginger Liqueur
  • lemon twist

Mix the scotch and liqueur over ice, shake vigorously, serve in a chilled martini glass up with a twist of lemon.

Dave’s thoughts:

  • Great gateway to scotch – retains a lot of the flavor of the individual scotch, softened with a pleasant hint ginger.
  • A little on the sweet side at first, with a dry finish of scotch.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 7/10
  • Strength: 8/10
  • Sweetness: 5/10
  • Nice drink for a bit of scotchy variety, probably wouldn’t order two!
