Lion & Rose

Samuel Tripet, Lily Blacks, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

“This drink was inspired by growing up with idolistic masculine and feminine influences. Having a balance of the two was very important to me. The Lion & Rose cocktail represents harmony between two great forces.” Samuel Tripet

Lion & Rose25 ml (.8 oz) Lagavulin 16 year old scotch whisky

25 ml (.8 oz) Amaro Montenegro

25 ml (.8 oz) Dolin dry vermouth

1 lemon twist, as garnish

Stir over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  Kindly excuse a little blasphemy here:  Jesus Christ Almighty, this is one incredibly fabulous drink. I could sip on these all night. As long as I sipped them slowly, of course, and that’s near as damn it impossible.
