Royal Penicillin Cocktail

Scotch is very trending in the Netherlands and the Penicillin Cocktail has been a personal favourite for a while now. The smokiness of the whisky works perfectly with the spicy notes of the ginger and the mild sweetness of honey. This Royal version gets some freshness of the champagne and makes it more palatable for the not so experienced whisky drinker.



  • 45 ml smokey Scotch whisky
  • 20 ml homemade honey & ginger syrup*
  • 20 ml fresh lemon juice
  • 20 ml champagne (or prosecco/cava)
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 slice of fresh ginger
  • 1 orange zest
