There's something about sipping on a classic whisky cocktail that just screams sophistication and elegance. In this recipe we've taken a twist on the classic whisky cocktail that still packs in all the flavour and contemporary flair without the added sugars and calories.

What you'll need:

50mls of whisky of your choice
20mls of lemon juice
1/2 cup of FAMOUS Lemon Soda
An Orange
Cocktail Shaker
Hawthorne strainer


  1. Start by combining your chosen whisky and fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker.

  2. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds until the outside of the shaker feels very cold.

  3. Strain the mixture through a Hawthorne strainer into a glass filled with ice.

  4. Slowly pour in 1/2 cup of Famous Lemon Soda, and then add an orange twist garnish 

How to craft the perfect orange twist

  1. Start with a fresh, ripe orange. wash thoroughly and pat dry
  2. Use a pairing knife or vegetable peeler to cut a wide slice of orange peel, being mindful not to cut too deep to avoid taking too much of the white pith, as it can be bitter.
  3. next trim the ends of the peel into a diagonal shape.
  4. Now to twist. The trick to a long lasting twist is to twist around a chop stick and let sit for a few seconds.

    Place the twist on the rim of a glass or on top of a drink or dish to add a pop of colour and aromatic flavour.
