Ever wondered where the term "on the rocks" came from? Legend has it that in the old days in Scotland, when the locals didn't have ice, they would take stones from the river chilled by the mountain snow and add it to their drinks. Trying anything on the rocks is the best way to really capture all the aromas and flavours a spirit has to offer. Want to amplify them even more? Add a few clear ice cubs or a drop or two of water and see how they change. And if that's still not your thing, we've included a few alternative tasty cocktails for you to try.
