Cocktails in the Country: “Hop Scotch” by Juliet DeRose, Blue Smoke, New York, NY
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.
