Yes Man

Adapted from a recipe by Scott Kennedy, Rubirosa, New York City.Yes Man
“A variation on a perfect Rob Roy, this blends classic spirits into a masculine sipper that’s quick to please.” Scott Kennedy.

1 generous lemon twist

45 ml (1.5 oz) Johnnie Walker Black Label scotch whisky

15 ml (.5 oz) Dolin Blanc vermouth

15 ml (.5 oz) Dolin Rouge vermouth

shy 15 ml (.5 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur

1 dash Peychaud’s bitters

1 skewered brandied cherry, as garnish

Rub the inside of a chilled coupe with the lemon twist, then discard. Stir over ice and strain into the glass. Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  This one’s right up my alley.  Big, strong, complex, and that one dash of Peychaud’s brings the whole darned thing to life.  Great job, Scott!
