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).

Day 81: Barnaby Lights

  • 2 oz pisco
  • 3/4 oz Aperol
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz grapefruit juice
  • 1 barspoon kirschwasser

I inherited some Kirschwasser from William and Kim when they cleaned out the bar, so of course I wanted to figure out what the hell I could make with it. This also used another unusual and often ignored liquor, Pisco. I LOVED it! It was refreshing and fruity without being obnoxious. Dane said that he could imagine drinking a pitcher of this stuff by the pool in summer.
