Flying Rob Roy

Adapted from a recipe by Steffen Goubeaud, Roomers, Frankfurt, Germany.

50 ml (1.65 oz) Johnnie Walker Gold Label scotch whisky

30 ml (1 oz) Bottled Aged Blend*

2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

Stir over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

*Bottled Aged Blend: Combine equal parts of Lillet Rouge and Carpano Antica Formula in a bottle with the zest of 3 lemons. Allow to age for 4 weeks.

gaz sez: This is one of the best drinks in this book. And yes, I’m swayed by the fact that Johnnie Walker Gold is my all-time favorite blend, but when it meets the pretty spectacular Bottle Aged Blend in the mixing glass, the scotch welcomes it with open arms, and the two of them embrace the Peychaud’s bitters with passion. Try this one. You’ll like it.
