Cocktail time

Black Blazer

The sun’s shining once again, and to celebrate longer days and warmer temperatures, we’re toasting with a twist on the traditional Blue Blazer cocktail. Originally a winter-warming beverage invented in San Francisco in the 1800s it was less about the ingredients (whisky, sugar and lemon peel) and more about the flame-lit show.

Our toast to the season combines mouth-watering chopped pineapple, the quintessential taste of summer hailing from somewhere sun-drenched and far-flung, and slices of green lime that brings a reinvigorating freshness to the cocktail. The lot is then shaken with caramelised sugar melted by blowtorch, and smooth Glenmorangie Scotch whisky to balance out the fruit’s tangy edge.



  • In a steel pan, combine the Glenmorangie Scotch whisky, pineapple, and green lime.
  • Sprinkle on brown sugar and melt with a blowtorch.
  • Place the fruit in a shaker and crush together.
  • Add whisky, dark chocolate liqueur and two ice cubes.
  • Shake and double strain over a single ice cube.
