DH and I are sampling Drambuie and Glenlivet recipes tonight. I loved this Warm Woolly Sheep recipe! I've seen recipes for this drink on several different sites, but none specify how much milk, so I suppose you could add to your liking. For me, 1/2 cup of fat-free milk was perfect. For the scotch, we used Glenlivet. Very warming (and potent)!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ounce scotch whiskey (we used Glenlivet)
  • 1 12 ounces drambuie
  • warm milk (I used 1/2 cup)


  1. Combine the whisky and Drambuie in a heat-safe mug. Top off with warm milk, and stir lightly. (DH warmed my milk in the microwave 45 seconds to 1 minute, and this was a good temperature for me. He then poured the milk over the liquor).

I fell in Love with the name of this drink! It's one of those names that a person just doesn't forget. Made it tonight and figured I needed it after shoveling loads of snow. Love the concept and it is enjoyable. It's a little too strong in the liquor for my taste and next time I'll use less of the alcohol. Made if for Photo tag. Thank you Dr. Jenny for sharing.

Made for ZWT6 amid a flurry of cooking last nite when I felt I deserved a reward. I admit I am a wimp for strong drinks & often take precautions. I used a lrg coffee mug & prob closer to 6 1/2 oz milk than 4. It was still very soothing & settled me w/o creating *brain fuzz* . Thx for posting this recipe, esp since I followed it w/another of your recipes as a further reward. :-) *Edited to Add* Love the recipe name here & so appropriate for me to try it as I am sure you agree. :-)

This was a nice, warm, comforting drink before bed. I used about 1 1/2 cups milk, and the whiskey flavor was still plenty strong. Made for ZWT6.
