Cocktail: Could Be Here, Could Be There | Bartender: Samantha Casuga

This is a refreshing highball style inspired by The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve’s delicious tropical notes and a slower, more indulgent way of drinking summertime drinks. I always love a highball in any season, but in the summer when I tend to have somewhat long and dare I say lazy sessions in the sun with time that feels eternal I really appreciate a lighter, fizzier, way of drinking. It was a no brainer to use beautiful tropical flavours that usually pop with rum, but with The Glenlivet you get the best of both worlds with a single malt and a rum cask finish. The name comes from the contrasting idea of using a spirit made in a colder climate like Scotland in a tropical style drink so truly it can be enjoyed anywhere. HEH! TOTAL YUM RUM RUM!!
