One of my beautiful brides chose her wedding colors based on Tiffany elegance. She wanted something Original, Stylish and Contemporary in addition to being incredibly delicious. This Signature Wedding Cocktail matched her colors and added that amazing Edible Garnish of a Satin Ribbon with a Silver Jewel. I am so happy you loved your Tiffany Inspired Cocktail my dear Isabella.
Many wonderful years of happiness to you both!

THE TARTAN Cocktail by Herb Westphalen

I've been asked to post the recipe for one of my own Signature Cocktails:


I created this a few years ago to showcase some of the trends in culinary and cocktail flavors.
You can use your favorite Scotch or ask for it that way:
- A GRANT Tartan (William Grant's)
- A RED Tartan (Johnny Walker Red)
-A PINCH Tartan (Pinch)... etc
I hope you get a chance to try one... or more.
Thanks and enjoy!

2 oz. Scotch (William Grant & Sons)
1 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1⁄2 oz. Canton Ginger Liqueur
1/4 teaspoon of Ginger Simple Syrup
Dash of Angostura Bitters
Candied Ginger as Garnish

Chill a martini glass
In a shaker, mix all liquid ingredients, add syrup, bitters and shake well
When chilled, strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with Crystallized Ginger
