Cocktail: Backbone

Cocktail: Backbone

Inspired by the blustery weather of the Scottish Islands, this whisky-lover’s cocktail is a mainstay at UVA Wine & Cocktail Bar. The varied notes of complex smoke, herbaceous and sweet caramel expressed in the Islay and Orkney Island Scotch whiskies, make these spirits a veritable backbone in the whisky category.

Ingredients:

1.50 oz Highland Park 10 YO Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky
0.50 oz Laphroaig 10 YO Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
0.50 oz Cherry Heering
0.50 oz Luxardo Amaro Abano
2 dashes Bittered Sling Moondog



Method:

Stir all ingredients gently with ice in a mixing vessel, until a medium level chill and dilution is achieved – about 15 seconds. Using a julep strainer, pour the liquid over a large cube in an old fashioned glass. Cut a long piece of orange peel, and remove the pith. Express the oils over the top of the cocktail, and drop inside.
