Scotch Sour

Barrelhound makes an especially mellow sour that, when using fresh lemon juice, is a perfect summer drink. The unpeated Barrelhound scotch is nice and light, contributing oak and vanilla flavors and a little maltiness that is very understated. This lets the fresh juice do all the work. Here's how to make it:
  • 2 oz. scotch (Barrelhound pictured)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup or 1 tsp. fine ground sugar
  • Orange slice
Combine all ingredients except orange slice in a shaker with ice. Shake well and pour into a lowball or sour glass. Garnish with the orange slice.
