Monkey Shoulder Summer Recipes

Monkey Raaj with Mango Ginger and Gondoraj, carries the aromatic citrus of Gondoraj and the spice from the mango ginger. Monkey Thandai as it is called is a twist to the flip type of cocktail made with Monkey Shoulder and an added flavour of Thandai. The spiced raw mango julep or fondly called by drinkers as Monkey Aam, the citrus and dry spice shine from the Aam panna, one of India’s favourite summer drink. Ice Ice Monkey, is a drink created specially for Ice tea lovers, using spiced earl grey tea syrup with Lime and ginger ale which compliments monkey shoulder core flavor including Cinnamon, ginger and Orange. The freshness in the drink is further enhanced by Cucumber and Mint leaves. Ape Spritzer is a light cocktail perfect for the lazy summer after noon inspired by the Italian Summer aperetivo style of Drink called Spritz. Each is easy to prepare and can be enjoyed just the way you like your whisky, the lazy easy way!
