“Hop Scotch”

Juliet DeRose, Blue Smoke, New York, NY

I wanted to create a beer cocktail that was sessionable yet still had the integrity of the whiskeys. Simple and a summer cocktail with traditional cold-weather spirits.

1 oz (30 ml) Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey

1 oz (30 ml) Highland Park 12-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

.5 oz (15 ml) Eli Mason Demerarra Syrup

.5 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters No. 6

2 oz (60 ml) IPA beer, to top

Shake over ice, and strain into an iced highball glass. Top with beer.
