The weather got you hot and bothered? If you’re in town you can always pop over to the Auchentoshan pop up at CHIJMES Lawn for $10 Make-Your-Own cocktails (or $12 if rather someone made it for you).
This iteration of Make-Your-Own is still as easy as ever but features a new line up: Chai Me to The Moon, Lowland Spring, Tokyo Shoga and Glasgow Sour, which are made with Auchentoshan 12YO or Three Wood Single Malts.
Chai Me To The Moon: Auchentoshan Three Wood with chai tea, orange and lemon juice for a spicy kick. With a name like that, it’s obviously a Jamey Merkel creation.
Glasgow Sour: Auchentoshan 12 with lime, orange and pineapple juice for maximum refreshment.
Lowland Spring: Floral mix of chrysanthemum, lemon and Auchentoshan 12 for a delicate turn of pace.
Tokyo Shoga: Another easy-drinking number featuring cherries, ginger ale and Three Wood. These drinks are obviously designed with the weather in mind, so mind that you don’t get too carried away! Always hydrate responsibly, but I don’t remember seeing water on the menu…
It’s also a good a time as any to stop for some nibbles with signature light bites from CHIJMES’s food outlets, just place a food order with the bar staff like you would at any restaurant and they’ll take care of everything.
There’ll be some Auchentoshan-themed games as well which may not be to everyone’s taste but it only takes a moment to play and you can redeem a variety of useful goodies ranging from $2 cocktail vouchers to whisky glasses, so why not.
The Auchentoshan Lawn Party will be at the CHIJMES Lawn from Wednesday, April 17, to Sunday, April 21. The bar will open from 6 PM to 10:30 PM except on Sunday where it will open from 2 PM to 7 PM.
