Celebrate Rabbie Burns with Dewars

I know Rabbie Burns’ Day is supposed to be all about celebrating the Scottish poet and enjoying some Haggis. But I am all about the drinks.



  • 1.5 parts DEWAR’S 12 Blended Scotch Whisky .75 parts Lemon juice
  • .75 parts Honey syrup
  • 3 slices fresh ginger
  • Candied ginger garnish


  1. Using a wooden muddler, muddle the fresh ginger in the bottom of a cocktail shaker until it is well mashed.
  2. Add the blended Scotch, lemon juice, and honey syrup, and fill shaker with ice.
  3. Shake until well chilled (about 20 seconds).
  4. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass (you may wish to double strain through a fine tea strainer to remove the small flecks of ginger), and spray the Islay Scotch over the top.
  5. Garnish.
  6. Enjoy.
  7. Repeat.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
