How to Make a Scotch and Aperol Moscow Mule

 In Cocktails, Scotch

I am taking my summer faves Aperol and Mint and combining them with some Macallan Scotch Whisky for a little flavor. Obviously, I like drinking scotch year round but I love drinking it in the fall and find it adds the perfect amount of fall flavor to cocktails. So, today I sharing the Scotch and Aperol Moscow Mule which will hit the spot this week. A little bit of bitter with a little bit of smoky makes this Moscow mule one of the best flavor combinations that I have tasted in a cocktail. Want to try a new twist on the Moscow mule? Try this Scotch and Aperol version to make your week a little more fun! Cheers to easing into to new seasons!
