Scotch Cobbler

This is a pretty rich drink as the name suggests, but it wasn't bad considering that it was a hot day and the drink was well chilled. It really helps to use Cointreau or white curacao to get the effect of light orange flavors that tame the liquor. The bartender at Bar Dupont suggested a fired orange peel to go with the orange liqueur in the drink.
  • 2 oz. scotch
  • 1/2 oz. honey
  • 1/2 oz. white curacao or Cointreau
  • mint sprig or singed orange peel (shown)
Combine all ingredients except mint and orange twist in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into an Old Fashioned glass with large ice cubes. Garnish with mint sprig, or squeeze orange peel over an open flame to singe the fruit oils and drop it in the glass.
