When it’s The Glenlivet you’re pouring, single malt whisky is made for more than just sipping and savouring. For this series, we tapped Rose Simard, ELLE’s Montreal-based resident mixologist, to create three exclusive single malt cocktails using The Glenlivet’s multi-faceted collection of spirits. Follow her ingenious (and easy-to-follow) recipes, and then drink up the good times.

Want to fancy up your next cabin weekend? Serve a guaranteed crowd-pleaser like the Captain’s Coffee. “To create this recipe, I imagined myself at the cottage with friends having a board-game tournament and good conversation,” says Simard. “I wanted something heartwarming that could also light up the party.” With a kick of espresso, some heat-tinged chocolate syrup (yum!) and The Glenlivet’s rich and intense Captain’s Reserve, it’s a jubilant excuse to extend the evening under the stars.
