If you’re a scotch lover, just wait until you try the Lassies and Laddies scotch cocktail. Made with scotch, tangerine juice, and honey, it’s the perfect way to enjoy your favorite spirit. This simple cocktail recipe is one I know you’ll want to come back to again and again, whether you’re an at-home bartending enthusiast, a long-time fan of good scotch, or simply someone who appreciates a well-made drink.
The inspiration behind this cocktail is Burns Night, a celebration of the life and poetry of Scottish poet Robert Burns. Traditionally held on January 25th, a typical Burns Night gathering features music, whisky, toasts, and readings of selected poetry. And what better way to pay tribute to Robert Burns than with a delicious scotch cocktail?
The Lassies and Laddies cocktail is best enjoyed after a good meal and in the company of those you love and appreciate.
This delightful drink combines the smooth sweetness of honey with the tartness of tangerine juice and pairs them alongside the herbal flavors of Benedictine. Egg white gives the drink a creamy texture and finally, Peychaud’s bitters add an appropriate touch of spice.
Step 1: Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until foamy.

While it may be inspired by Burns Night, this scotch cocktail recipe is appropriate any time you’re in the mood for a well-crafted drink. So gather your ingredients (and perhaps some friends) and give this delightful cocktail a try.
