Toast to Tonight's Latin GRAMMYs with This J Balvin-Inspired Cocktail


Tonight’s Latin GRAMMY Awards®  deserve to be celebrated in style and good taste!

It’s time to whip up a cocktail made with Buchanan’s Scotch Whisky and inspired by global Latin music superstar and Latin GRAMMY® winner J Balvin. The drink, created by mixologist J.D.
