We originally spotted this cocktail at Manchester’s marvellous Schofield’s Bar but the recipe originates from Kevin Armstrong of London’s Satan’s Whiskers. Satan’s opened in 2013 in Bethnal Green and won the top spot for Top 50 Cocktail Bars in 2019. It remains the city’s original neighbourhood cocktail bar with a daily changing menu to ensure those local to the establishment keep coming back to find out what drinks will delight their tastebuds next.
The Pink Thistle uses fresh lemon juice to perfectly balance the Scotch whiskey and incorporates an added sweetness of apricot liqueur and raspberry syrup for a well-rounded cocktail.
