What will they think of next? (June edition)

Australian mixology expert Ben Hehir has been commissioned by the Glenmorangie Distillery to come up with a line of signature cocktails -- or "serves," as he prefers to call them -- using the company's Scotch whiskies.

I had the opportunity to try several during a recent private dinner at Glenmorangie House in Cadboll, near Inverness, Scotland, and highly recommend them -- particularly The Kalamansi, made with the hard-to-find Indian fruit of that name.

Glenmorangie Spring Tea

1½ ounces Glenmorangie Original
¾ ounce Earl Grey tea
2½ ounces apple juice
¾ ounce strawberry juice
1½ ounce fresh lemon juice

Shake all ingredients and strain into a tall glass full of ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

• The Kalamansi

60 ml Glenmorangie Original
1/2 fresh lime
1 fresh kalamansi
2 barspoons soft Demerara sugar
20ml creme de peche

Muddle the lime in a stemless cocktail glass. Add remainder of ingredients and stir over crushed ice. Garnish with kalamansi fruit slices.

The Orangie

50 ml Glenmorangie Original
15 ml creme de peche
10ml Grand Marnier

Stir ingredients over ice. Garnish with a grapefruit slice.
