Island Hopper

“Lambay is a nice citrus, floral whiskey with a little spiciness to it. So I decided to use ingredients that would accentuate those notes. Pineapple and lemon for the citrus notes and La Quintinye for the floral. Pimento Bitters added that final touch for the spiciness.”

1.5 oz (45 ml) Lambay Irish Whiskey

.5 oz (15 ml) La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Rouge Vermouth

.5 oz (15 ml) pineapple juice

.5 oz (15 ml) fresh lemon juice

.25 oz (7.5 ml) gum syrup

1 dash Dale DeGroff’s Pimento Aromatic Bitters

1 lemon twist

2 thyme sprigs, as garnish

Shake over ice, and double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze the twist over the drink, then discard. Add the garnish.
