Chivalry - The Gentleman's Drink


A few days ago I received a bottle of Chivas Regal 12 Limited Edition by Patrick Grant, as well as a recipe for a cocktail called 'Chivalry'. The cocktail, which is aptly named, is the embodiment of the Chivas Regal brand in a highball glass.  The words luxury, brotherhood and chivalry sit comfortably on the tip of the tongue of those who taste this drink.
As a modern gentleman, I try to prove the saying “chivalry is dead” as an untrue myth.  That being said, the “Chivalry” cocktail and all that it’s made of was something that I just had to try it out for myself.  Needless to say, I LOVED IT!  This is a crisp and refreshing cocktail that has the smooth taste of Chivas Regal 12, which is complimented by apple, lemon and elderflower flavours.
I can truly say that ‘Chivalry’ is alive and kicking, as well as the name of my new favourite cocktail! In the true spirit of gentlemanly behaviour, I thought it only right that I share it with you, my fellow gentlemen, so here is the recipe for you to try it out:
Glass: Highball
Garnish: Caramelised Apple Crisp
Method: Add the ingredients to a tall glass and stir
45ml     Chivas 12yr
45ml     Apple Juice
45ml     Sparkling Mineral Water
10ml     Fresh lemon Juice
5ml       Elderflower cordial
PS: This is an amazing guy-code-approved cocktail for us guys who don't want to be caught with a 'pink drink' in our hands - lol!
Give it a try and let me know if you love it as much as I do!
