Review:

Rich and indeed sophisticated, this Scotch-based drink has a zing of ginger spice with a zest of citrus from the garnish.

History:

Created in the 1990s by Gary "gaz" Regan who in his San Francisco Chronicle 'The Cocktailian' column wrote of this drink, "I gave the formula a series of silly names, and eventually I got really frustrated with it so I looked up "sophisticated" in Roget's Thesaurus.. The Debonair was born."

Nutrition:

One serving of Debonair contains 212 calories.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.8 standard drinks
  • 29.41% alc./vol. (58.82° proof)
  • 25 grams of pure alcohol
