Many many years ago, a group of friends went for a holiday in Zimbabwe. We first stopped off in the rugged Eastern Highland for some trout fishing and then made our way up to Lake Kariba. There we stayed in the Cutty Sark Hotel while exploring the beautiful dam and finding tiger fish. The name Cutty Sark alway stayed with me and reminded me of wonderful times with good friends. When I saw a whisky with that name, I just had to have it.

It was one of those weeks! Frequent tantrums, fights about breakfast and school assignments not finished. Getting stuck in traffic, with deadlines looming larger than the truck you are stuck behind. Afternoon rush from ballet to swimming, soccer to extra maths, all with a grumpy toddler in tow. The husband down with man flu and the geyser breaking and no hot water. After a week like this, a glass of red wine is just not going to cut it.
Occasionally a girl friend would ask me about whisky. Where do they start and what do they start with, are typical questions. My advice is always that the best place to start is a tasting session where someone can guide you. If, however, you do not have access to a tasting session, buying some whisky and making whisky cocktails is not a bad option. So, with Valentine’s Day coming up, what better excuse for some pink whisky cocktails.
