The Crushed Polly


The Polly Cocktail happens to be a classic cocktail which can be found all over the internet and in most good cocktail books.  I tweaked the recipe for a hot summer day and came up with the The Crushed Polly.

The Crushed Polly
1 1/2 oz Speyside Scotch
1/2 oz grapefruit juice
1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz orange Curacao
dash of Grenadine for colour
2 large cubes of ice

Mix in a blender until smooth(ish)
Garnish  with a slice or wedge of  lemon or  lime

Definitely a sipping cocktail for a hot summer day!
I should point out that both of these cocktails taste great with Canadian Whisky or Bourbon!
