Created by Anthony Bohlinger, National Fistful of Bourbon Brand Ambassador
- Strawberry Top
- 2 cup Diced Strawberries
- 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- Colada Center
- 1 ½ cups of fresh pineapple cubes
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut cream
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 part Fistful of Bourbon
- 1 ½ Teaspoons Fresh lime Juice

The Glenfiddich Highland Cooler
Created by Allan Roth, Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador
- 1 part Glenfiddich 14 Year Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve
- 5 parts Watermelon Juice
- Garnish: Watermelon & Mint
Method: This might be one of the simplest, and most delicious, drinks you can make on the 4th of July. Simply cool the juice (pureed fruit) of a ripe, seedless watermelon, and mix it five to one with Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve. Pour into a highball or rocks glass and garnish with a small watermelon wedge and some mint.
For extra credit, stick the 5:1 mixture in the freezer. Once it’s set, scrape it out with a fork to create a delicious watermelon Glenfiddich snow cone.
