These Scotch-Infused Desserts are the Perfect Summer Treat

With National Scotch Day coming up (Friday, July 27), we thought it would be a good idea to consume Scotch whisky in a way other than straight. To be fair, we love it that way most of all. It’s just that we like to mix it up every once in a while, which is how we came across Cow Tipping Creamery (CTC), an Austin, Texas-based company that is doing something special for the upcoming day. CTC is doing what they do best (making ice cream) and doing what we do best (adding booze to things … like our mouths). The result of that are delicious Scotch-filled dessert drinks.

Using Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, CTC has devised three different special recipes that will be available for sale only on National Scotch Day. If you’re in Austin, we highly encourage you to head down and pick up one or three of these delectable desserts.

If you can’t make it down to Austin, though, don’t you worry. You can make the delicious treats yourself at home by following the recipes below.

Our favorite is the Whiskey A Go-Go, but all three are pretty chuggable. Just don’t drink them too quickly. No one wants brain freeze while trying to enjoy whisky.

The Doc Is In

Cow Tipping Creamery
  • 1.5 parts Monkey Shoulder
  • 3 parts Dr. Pepper soda
  • 1 generous scoop or swirl of CTC ice cream
  • 1 glass dipped in CTC Chocolate Dr. Pepper sauce and sprinkled with cracked pepper

Method: Take a chilled old-fashioned whisky glass (short glass) and dip in CTC Chocolate Dr. Pepper sauce. Use a squeeze bottle that’s filled with the DPCS to add more sauce on the rim to get a dripping effect. Sprinkle rim lightly with cracked pepper. Fill the glass over half way with Dr. Pepper soda (100 ml). Add measured amount of Monkey Shoulder whiskey. Add generous scoop or swirl of CTC creamy vanilla soft-serve.

Whiskey A Go-Go Shake
