1 oz Scotch
1.5 oz ROOT
0.5 oz Applejack
0.5 oz Simple Syrup
0.25 oz Luxardo
5 drops Cinnamon Tincture

Shake well with ice, serve up garnished with a maraschino cherry.

NOTES: Not bad. Cinnamon could be a little stronger. Also might try with a decent rye instead of Scotch. I enjoyed it, but something was lacking, I just can’t put my finger on what. Worth toying with later.

2 oz Blended Scotch
0.5 oz Absinthe
0.5 oz St Germain
0.5 oz Luxardo
0.5 oz lime juice

Shake, serve up with a lemon twist.

NOTES: Not great. Interesting flavor, but too syrupy. Like the base, but need better additions than used here.

1.5 oz Scotch
0.5 oz St Germain
0.5 oz Luxardo maraschino liquor
0.5 oz lemon juice
0.25 oz sweet vermouth
2 dashes plum bitters
Absinthe wash

Wash a rocks glass with a few drops of absinthe. Combine all ingredients in a shaker and stir. Pour into absinthe-washed glass. Serve garnished with cherries.

NOTES: First, don’t mind the shit picture. I forgot to take one until I’d already started drinking it. Otherwise, not bad, but not great. Potential is there, and scotch is well balanced, but too sweet and syrupy. Maybe eliminate vermouth completely and reduce Luxardo to 0.25oz. Absinthe was also interesting, but unnecessary. Would also increase scotch to full 2oz next time. Consensus was strip it down a bit, and flavor will improve.
