Scotch & Shortbread for Santa (or the Scotch Lover on Your Holiday List!)

Growing up, we always put out a glass of egg nog and homemade whipped shortbread cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve. When I moved out on my own, I continued to make whipped shortbread every Christmas, and it has such a nostalgic taste now for me. That, combined with my love of wearing plaid, especially during the holidays, and it probably comes as no surprise that I've got some Scottish in me.

This year though, I thought I'd go with the Scottish theme a little more and switch out the usual egg nog, instead pairing with some scotch. Jak's, a local BC-based liquor store, has Muckle Flugga Single Malt Scotch Whiskey that is great - all the way from Speyside, Scotland, it's nice and smooth with aromas of sweet spice, blossom, pear and honey, and aged in ex-Sherry casks with over wintering in the Shetland Isles to add a touch of salinity.

I quite enjoyed sipping on this by the fire! If you have a scotch lover on your holiday list, I have a feeling they'd love this as a gift too.
