How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and strain into chilled glass.


Lemon zest twist & side of shortbread


Rich and slightly sweet, laced with spice liqueur and a good dram. The ritualistic serving of haggis and a dram or two.


Recipe adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930, The Savoy Cocktail Book which calls for equal parts vermouth and Scotch with three dashes of Bénédictine. Craddock writes of this drink, "One of the very best Whisky Cocktails. A very fast mover on Saint Andrew's Day."
