Picture of Scotch Loch and Drop It Cocktail

Favorite Recipe: In the 80s Scotland experienced a surplus of whiskey at a time when sales were very low and not expected to rise. Many distilleries were closed. This time in Scotch history was called the Scotch Loch. Now we are experiencing the most exciting time for whiskey the world has seen. My favorite cocktail that I have ever created fit for any drinker to enjoy:

Scotch Loch and Drop It
1.5 oz Monkey Shoulder Scotch
.5 oz Drambuie
1 oz Jasmine Green Tea Syrup
.75 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 drops Dandelion & Burdock Bitters
Compass Box Peat Monster Scotch Rinsed Glass
