The Wild Geese Whiskey... and a Brazilian cocktail.... obviously.

So far, the 2014 summer of sport hasn’t exactly gone to plan.
Three little bottles; 'Rare', 'Limited Edition' & 'Single Malt'
First the England team crash out of the world cup, then Mr. Personality himself Andy Murray leaves Wimbledon just a tad earlier than planned....

Never fear though my friends; where there is no patriotic excuse to sit in front of the TV, there is still plenty of World Cup fever and tennis excitement to inspire a cheeky drink or two, and what better ingredient than Irish Whiskey?! Designed especially for the 2014 World Cup, the lovely people of Wild Geese Whiskey have sent us this bespoke cocktail, which combines the smooth taste of The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey with the exotic flavours of Brazil!

You can pick up the tasty Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey for £33.15 at The Whisky Exchange, or you can even buy the three bottle gift set for £16.85.


Plus the 'Classic Blend'.


Gold Cup
Ingredients
2 parts The Wild Geese Classic Blend Whiskey
1/2 part of lime juice
1/2 part coconut cream
1/2 part sugar syrup

Garnish
lemon
1/2 part of blue curaçao
passion fruit shell

Method
Blend a small handful of basil leaves, coconut cream and lime juice together until you have a liquid form. Pour into a cocktail shaker with sugar syrup and The Wild Geese Classic Blend Irish whiskey then shake hard with ice. 

Serve in a rocks glass over crushed ice and add a passion fruit shell. Fill the shell with blue curaçao and garnish with the zest of a lemon. Add your nation's flag to celebrate your team for the final, champion touch. 

The combination of the triple citrus notes (orange, lime and lemon) with the coolness of the basil leaves make this a super refreshing cocktail with a mild and creamy, sweet finish.
