Who says single malt scotch is only for sipping? BenRiah, a Speyside distillery, is encourage drinkers to shake it up this holiday season with well-crafted cocktails featuring BenRiach 10-Year Peasted Curiositas.

Speyside Ceilidh by David Dong (North End Grill)
"The Speyside Ceilidh is perfect for the fall as it is a Scotch cocktail that still tastes like Scotch. The Royal Combier and Dry Vermouth round out the cocktail, making it pleasantly silky and help to highlight the "fortifying" and "warming" qualities of the BenRiach Scotch as the days and nights get colder."



1.5 oz BenRiach 10 Year Old Peated Curiositas
.75 oz Royal Combier
.75 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice. Strain onto a large rock in a rocks glass. Garnish with an expressed grapefruit peel.
