Sometimes, at the end of a long summer day, I think I want a cocktail.

But what I actually want is a snack.

Yes, I want that kick of alcohol, but I also want to eat the little bits of fruit that have been used to make my fruit cocktail. (It's almost dinnertime. Aren’t you hungry?)

Sadly, there have never been enough bits of fruit swirling around my cocktail glass ... until now.

Presenting: black and blue scotch berries.

Blackberries and blueberries drizzled with honeyed whisky and topped with a dollop of cream. A cocktail and a snack.

The keys here are to use your freshest and best ingredients, like plump blueberries and blackberries, fireweed honey and good, 12-year-old Scotch whisky.

Slainte!
