Smoky island malts tamed by the Christmas pudding flavours of Pedro Ximénez with pastis adding notes of enlivening anise. To quote Ruby’s menu, “An unabashedly smoky, Scottish version of the Manhattan. Talisker single malt whisky [we used blended Scotch and Lagavulin] and stirred over pedro ximenez sweet sherry with a Ricard pastis rinse. A well-loved signature Ruby Cocktail.”


Adapted from a drink created in 2007 by Adeline Shepard and Craig Harper at Ruby Bar, Copenhagen.
