Braemar Cocktail

Let's face it: I only wanted to make this cocktail because it combined scotch and Benedictine. This drink is named after a small town in the highlands, Speyside region, known for having the third coldest winters in Scotland behind Dalwhinnie and Leadhills, some other godforsaken place. This was rich and complex and complimented my evening's reading of Sir Walter Scott's Antiquary.
  •  1 1/2 oz. scotch
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. Benedictine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
