Blue Firth / The Charmer

This drink goes by The Charmer in the New York Bartender's Guide, but it has its own more Scottish name as well. I'd made it years ago during a Democratic primary election night because of its color. I'm really impressed with its flavor, though. I don't smoke but I associate its taste with having a cigarette for some reason. It has a lot of orange bitterness before you even add the orange bitters. My bitters sank to the bottom, which made it even more interesting when you finish the drink.
  • 1 1/2 oz. scotch (Barrelhound used)
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. blue curacao 
  • several dashes orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
