Interesting Cocktails

(John Harper) #1

As many of you know, I’m something of a whisky and cocktail aficionado. Figured I’d share some good recent experiments (both my own and some local mixologists’). Feel free to jump in and share.


  • 1.5 parts Old Tom gin
  • 1.5 parts Finlaggan whisky
  • 3/4 parts Sweet vermouth
  • Abbott’s bitters

Add all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
Strain into a chilled coupe.

Equal parts Finlaggan and Braulio (sub. any bitter amaro)
Mix in a chilled whisky tumbler.

That Daisho sounds amazing.

I’ve got some ideas for an Eye of Kotar, but I don’t have the booze to test it out :-/

The idea: flavored ice sphere (probably cherry and elderflower) in a glass of barrel-aged gin & lillet blanc w/ a cherry syrup float/splash on top.

Then again, the Eye,Hand, and Heart of Kotar seems like a 3-shot and your out for the evening type of flight. :stuck_out_tongue: So maybe those are shooters… :thinking:


If you want to go for the pun the Heart of Kotar could be Cynar based
