We’ve even paired one of these cocktails, all of which boasts no more than four ingredients, with a culinary favorite, the Lobster Roll.

The Famous Grouse – Lobster Roll + Whisky Ginger Pairing

Famous Grouse and Burger and Lobster

“Whisky pairs beautifully with a lobster roll as the creamy mayo and melted butter combination with coat your mouth and then soften the alcohol on your palate. Specifically, The Famous Grouse pairs perfectly due to the zesty orange and citrus notes, which complements the freshness of the lobster, celery, and lemon already in the recipe,” – Nicola Riske, The Famous Grouse Brand Ambassador

4 oz Ginger Ale
Dash of fresh lemon juice
