Day 87: Pete’s Word

  • 1 oz Islay scotch
  • 1 oz green chartreuse
  • 1 oz maraschino liqueur
  • 1 oz lime juice

…Huh. This one I found while randomly flipping open the Death & Co book. Since the Last Word is probably my current favorite cocktail I knew immediately I wanted to try it. Unfortunately I think using an Islay overpowers just about everything else. Maybe if I had more of a taste for Islays my opinion would be different.

Day 82: Corpse Defiler #1

  • 1 1/2 oz Islay scotch
  • 1/2 oz kirschwasser
  • 1/2 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1/4 oz Cherry Heering
  • citrus twist

Here’s another that caught my eye when perusing Kirschwasser recipes. I used Laphroaig as the scotch. I found it to taste mostly of Laphroaig, though Dane said he could taste the differences. I might make it again and try with a slightly more gentle, less distinctive Islay (like Bowmore).
