A Whisky Mac, or to use its full name, a Whisky Macdonald, is a cocktail made with whisky and ginger wine. The whisky is traditional expected to be a Scotch whisky, and usually a blended type. The recipes vary from those that have equal parts of both ingredient to those that use a ratio of 3 to 2 of whisky to ginger wine.
The Whisky Mac is also known as "The Golfers′ Favourite" as apparently golfers drank them to ward off the cold after a chilly round of golf.
Originating in the USA, the Applejack cocktail was originally made using 80 to 100 proof brandy. The French use Calvados, which is far more subtle and fruity in comparison.
An Orange Fizz is a Gin Fizz, but with orange juice rather than lemon.
