“This drink is a remake of Bobby Burns. The angular whiskey is softened by the Martelletti Vermouth, and the bitters and Frangelico go hand in hand. On the second sip there will be an explosion of flavors in your mouth. A beautiful poem that will last until the last drop,” Joy Napolitano.
50 ml (1.7 oz) Talisker single malt scotch
25 ml (.8 oz) Martelletti Vermouth Classico
10 ml (.3 oz) Frangelico liqueur
2 drops of Bitter Truth chocolate bitters
First smoke the cocktail glass. Stir the remaining ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled coupe.
gaz sez: Talisker is a favorite malt of mine, and it waltzes beautifully with the vermouth and Frangelico in this glass—the cigar smoke adding a fabulous dimension that really makes this cocktail stand out in any old crowd.
