This golden drink is dry and sophisticated, yet honeyed and approachable.


Adapted from a cocktail discovered in 2006 at The Clift Hotel, San Francisco, USA.

My original recipe for this cocktail was 60ml/2oz Scotch whisky, 15ml/½oz Drambuie, and 30ml/1oz dry vermouth which seemed to be liked with 5 ratings at 5/5. However, it was boozy so in June 2020 I reduced the volume of each ingredient to the above with the liqueur ratio very slightly increased and a dash of water added to aid dilution. It works well without this addition but served on-the-rocks.
