1.5 oz Scotch
1 oz Ginger Syrup
0.5 oz Honey Syrup
0.5 oz Pimm’s
0.5 oz St. Germain
0.5 lemon juice
2 healthy dashes Whiskey Barrel Bitters

Shake ingredients well with ice and pour over a large ice cube. Dash with seltzer (we’re talking like a tablespoon here, don’t drown the thing) and garnish with candied ginger.

NOTES: Kind of took a shot in the dark with some of these ingredients and it really ended well. This one turned out to be damn tasty, if ever-so-slightly too sweet. Making again I might up the scotch to 2 oz and/or cut out the honey syrup totally. The Pimm’s gave it a nice, surprising aftertaste. I’ll be making this one again.

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.
