Banchory Cocktail

This drink is named after a medium-size town in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It seems to be a bit of a commercial center that has grown over the centuries. The scotches in this region are known for their sherry cask flavoring and especially smooth texture.

I also felt that this drink could use the addition of a singed orange zest to go with the tsp. of orange juice. (Follow the instructions for the previous drink.) It's really just a matter of having a lit flame and giving the zest a pinch directly above the flame's highest point.
  • 1 oz. scotch
  • 1 oz. medium sherry
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar syrup
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
