If we have to mix our Scotch we’ll pick a cocktail named after a guy who wasn’t depicted onscreen by crazy-ass Mel Gibson, but by bad-ass Liam Neeson. That makes us feel a little better for messing with one of the world’s great spirits. Sweet or dry vermouth can be used in this classic cocktail, but the sweet was loads better. (A certain husband made a certain wife finish the dry version, pansy!)
- 1 part Scotch
- 1/2 part sweet vermouth
- dash bitters
- 1 maraschino cherry
Throw some ice in a tumbler. Shake in the bitters. Top with liquors and give it a swirl. Garnish with cherry. Drink while listening to bagpipe music. We couldn’t find any bagpipe music on YouTube that didn’t want to make us hide under the couch with our Rob Roys. So here’s some guy from AC/DC on the bagpipes.
