Scotch and Adventure in the Scottish Highlands
Last year my brother and I went in search of our Scottish roots in the Highlands. Before this trip, I was not much of a Scotch drinker. Now, I may add it to my resume. (Proficient in PowerPoint and Excel, Scotch drinker.) Thanks to pubs freckling the countryside, there’s plenty of opportunity to try varieties. I discovered a new drink, the Libertine. The recipe for this relatively low-calorie (135) bevy is as follows: Cut six lime wedges and muddle in a rocks glass; fill with crushed ice; add 1 and 1/2 parts of Drambuie and top with a splash of club soda. The subtle hint of honey and sweetness in the Drambuie makes it much smoother going down. If you want to add Scotch drinker to your CV, or want a vacation that appeals to adventurers, history lovers and imbibers, add Scotland to the bucket list.
