Linstead Cocktail

I am often surprised how well blended scotch can make amazing tropical flavors. I am also learning that while a lot of absinthe can overwhelm, a little serves like a bitters or perhaps even gives a tart crispness just like cherry liqueur. You could use it in a tiki in place of orgeat syrup and no one would be the wiser.

The Linstead Cocktail is a great anytime of the day drink with lots of fruit and frothiness, it feels really luxurious.

  • 2 oz. scotch
  • 1/4 tsp. Pernod
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. bar sugar
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
