Discover This: Monkey Shoulder x Wingmans’ New Cocktail and Wing CollabBy Angelica Malin
Monkey Shoulder has teamed with London’s hottest wing restaurants, Wingmans, for two new limited-edition menu items that’ll rock your ruddy socks off.
Created using Smokey Monkey Shoulder whisky – the sweet smoky variant from Monkey Shoulder – get your chops around the Drunken Monkey Wings, and a twist on a classic old fashioned cocktail with the Smokey Cherry Old Fashioned.
Known for its tasty internationally inspired variations on classic wings, Wingmans has concocted the smokin’ whisky-infused Drunken Monkey wings which delight with a mouth-watering sticky sweetness balanced with a punch of sensational smokiness to finish off. Created by infusing Smokey Monkey whisky with Wingmans’ own barbeque and chipotle sauce, the wings are then finished with maple and whisky glazed bacon bits, crispy shallot rings and smoked Maldon salt.
The Smokey Cherry Old Fashioned takes the much-loved old fashioned and gives it an injection of fresh flavours all based around the sweetly peated Smokey Monkey Shoulder whisky. Shaken not stirred, the cocktail ingredients enhance the sweet vanilla, fiery black pepper, and bright citrus notes of the whisky by using dashes of sweet syrups, fresh cocktail cherries, fresh wedges of orange and a few drops of orange bitters. The Smokey Cherry Old Fashioned is served over ice and presented in a haze of smoke to tantalize the senses.
