If you want a sophisticated drink, try a Summer Nectar with Glenfiddich scotch. It's simple and refreshing, just like a summer evening as the season changes. The hint of pear in the scotch is only enhanced by adding fresh pear and raspberries to the mix. This drink brings the classiness back to the fruity cocktail.


  • 2 oz. Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • 1/2 ripe pear, chopped
  • 3 raspberries
  • Orange for garnish
