Easy summer whiskey cocktails with The Glenlivet - summer cocktails recipes -

Whisky is not just for winter. Whisky is also for summer! Break the stereotype and enjoy whisky this summer by creating whisky cocktails. Two of my favorite summer whisky cocktails are the Mint Lime Smash and the Pineapple Lime Smash. And my go-to whisky this summer is The Glenlivet. 

Who is The Glenlivet?

If you haven’t heard of The Glenlivet before, Scottish malt whisky was founded by George Smith in Scotland in the 1820s. Over the decades, The Glenlivet was passed on from George Smith’s extended family members. The brand eventually made its way to the United States in the 1930s. By the 1950s, The Glenlivet represented half of the Scottish malt whisky sold in the U.S. You can read more about the brand’s history on The Glenlivet Our Story page.

Here are two summer whisky cocktails to try this season:

If you haven’t tried the Founder’s Reserve, its flavor is creamy with zesty fruits. It has a long, creamy, smooth finish and notes of citrus fruit and orange. The Founder’s Reserve is a tribute to George Smith, the founder of The Glenlivet.
