A Scottish Twist on the Classic White Lady Cocktail
If you're looking for a unique and refreshing twist on a classic cocktail, you're in for a treat.

This cocktail is perfect for those who appreciate a well-balanced and slightly herbal libation. Let's dive into the recipe and you can create one of your own!
50ml Scots Pine Gin
25ml Lemon Juice
1 tsp Marmalade
Orange slice or twist for garnish
Jigger or measuring tools
Coupe or martini glass
- Chill Your Glass: Start by placing your coupe or martini glass in the freezer to chill. A frosty glass will keep your cocktail wonderfully refreshing.
- Measure and Prepare Your Ingredients: Gather all your ingredients and measuring tools. Measure out 50ml of Scots Pine Gin, 25ml of lemon juice, and 25ml of Cointreau using a jigger or measuring cup. For the marmalade, use 1 teaspoon – this will add a subtle bitterness to the cocktail.
- Combine Ingredients in a Shaker: Add the Scots Pine Gin, lemon juice, Cointreau, and marmalade into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
- Shake Vigorously: Give it a good shake for around 15-20 seconds. The ice will help chill and dilute the mixture slightly while also creating that perfect silky smooth texture.
- Strain into Chilled Glass: Remove your chilled glass from the freezer and strain the cocktail mixture into it. The cold glass will ensure your cocktail stays chilled throughout the experience.
- Garnish with an Orange Twist: Take a fresh orange and slice a thin twist from the peel. Express the oils over the drink by holding the twist over the glass and giving it a good twist. This will release the oils and add a lovely aroma to your cocktail. You can also place the twist on the rim or float it on the surface for an elegant touch.
- Serve and Enjoy!
