Hello, my name is Jackson Wilcox. This is my first official blog and I’m very excited to explore what it can do. I’ve decided that my first post should include Scotch, a drink near and dear to me. It’s a toast to kicking off this whole project.
Scotch is my go-to. Almost nothing in the world of drink compares to the pleasure of sipping a good dram – neat, rocks, and now dessert. I’ve recently discovered cranachan. A traditional Scottish dessert of homemade whipped cream, raspberries, honey, toasted oatmeal and, yes, scotch.
Cranachan is simple, delicious and one of the few Scotch/dessert pairings I’ve found. I’ll be whipping up another batch come Christmas. Perhaps a dollop atop my fathers homemade Baileys? I’m sure that breaks all sorts of rules but…
The recipe for Scottish Cranachan can be found here.
