Barton Special

 Sometimes a hard liquor drink on the rocks is just you need after a hard day. This one is very good quality, and one of its qualities is being less than the sum of its parts. Let me explain. There's apple jack, but there's also a good helping of gin and scotch. It should be a mouthful of flavors, but somehow it is mellow and subdued, and this works to its favor. Here's how to make it.
  • 2 oz. apple jack (Laird's pictured)
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. scotch (Barrelhound pictured)
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except twist in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled highball glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with the twist.
