At the end of last year, the boys from @drinksfromamsterdam and I organised a cocktail jam session and photoshoot with a bunch of amazing Amsterdam bartenders at the beautiful @visqueamsterdam. I made three drinks in total, all original recipes. This is the first one, which uses the delicious @chivasregal XV. The smooth cognac infused flavours of this whiskey work so well in this cocktail.

Here’s how to make a Gold & Chivas at home.


  • 60 ml Chivas Regal XV
  • 22.5 ml lemon juice
  • 22.5 ml runny honey
  • 2 drops saline solution
  • 2 dash Tabasco hot sauce
  • Lemon peel to garnish


Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake over ice. Strain into an ice filled rocks glass and garnish with a lemon peel.
