Elderflower Thistle

I have to confess, I was intrigued by this cocktail by Carey Jones and John D. McCarthy on FWx:
So far it is the best flavored rocks scotch drink I've made, better than the Godfather and the Rusty Nail. I think it is because it uses so much St. Germain, which is light and citrusy and doesn't compete with the scotch for flavor. Try this by stirring and only using the juice from a lemon zest for flavor.

  • 2 oz. scotch
  • 1 oz. St. Germain
  • lemon zest
Build cocktail with scotch, St. Germain and large ice cubes in a rocks glass. Stir ingredients until cool and twist lemon zest above the drink before dripping it in.
