1 teaspoon caster sugar
4 dashes of Angostura Bitters
50 ml Dewars Scotch whiskey
1 orange, to garnish
Add your sugar to a rocks glass with 4 dashes of Angostura Bitters and a splash of hot water. Stir the mix until you have dissolved all of the sugar. Add 3 or 4 ice cubes and half of the Scotch whiskey and stir for around 60 seconds. Top up the glass with more ice and add the rest of the rye whiskey, then stir for another 60 seconds.
Cut a piece of orange peel about the size of your thumb (be careful not to bend it). Hold the piece of orange peel between finger and thumb over the glass. Quickly bend the orange peel so the oil from the skin settles on the surface of the drink. Drop the orange peel into the drink, stir a couple more times and serve.

Invented simply to disguise bootleg whiskies, a few dashes of bitters and a twist are the best way to smooth out a whisky and bring out the residual sweetness.
BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
