J&B Rare

on January 24, 2021

There may be a lockdown in London, but we're celebrating Burns Night with J&B Rare Whisky, creating Scottish cocktails and recipes for you to enjoy at home!

Shortbread Sour

Shortbread is essential for Burns Night and we're using the Scottish delicacy to infuse vodka and put a sweet twist on the Whisky Sour.


  • 30 ml J&B Rare Whisky
  • 30 ml Shortbread Vodka or Amaretto
  • 20 ml Simple Syrup
  • 2 drop Angostura Bitters
  • Egg
  • Lemon
  • Raspberry for garnish
  • Ice

Shortbread Vodka: Mix a teaspoon of crushed shortbread with 120ml vodka. Infuse for at least 24 hours before straining out the biscuit and pouring into a bottle.

Crush a shortbread finger into a fine crumb, dip a cocktail glass into a bowl of water and coat with shortbread crumbs. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the whisky.

Add the vodka, simple syrup, bitters, egg white and squeeze in the lemon juice. Shake hard before straining into the glass filled with ice. Garnish with a raspberry and serve.


A Scottish favourite, this traditional dessert is spiked with whisky and combines toasted oats, crème fraîche and fresh raspberries.


  • 150 ml Crème Fraîche
  • 30 ml J&B Rare Whisky
  • 200 g Fresh Raspberries
  • 100 g Toasted Oats
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Flaked Almonds

Toast the oats until golden and crush half of the raspberries into a puree.

Place the crème fraîche into a bowl, add whisky, sweeten with honey and whisk to thicken.

Fill the serving glasses by layering fresh raspberries, puree, toasted oats and crème fraîche. Top with fresh raspberries and flaked almonds to garnish.

Scotch Toddy

This winter warmer combines whisky with honey, lemon for the ultimate Scottish cure all.


  • 30 ml J&B Rare Whisky
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • Lemon
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Hot Water

Pour the whisky into your glass with the juice from half a lemon and sweeten with honey.

Stir with a cinnamon stick, top with hot water and serve with a slice of lemon.
