Loch Lomond

Sometimes I find it hard to sip a scotch neat anymore. I don't know what this says about me, except that I think a cocktail speeds ingestion and cools the body. Warm alcohol heats the blood, I guess. This one is like a nice dip in the pool, but it is equally fine and pairs well with figs, dark chocolate and Walker's shortbread cookies.
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended scotch (Barrelhound used)
  • 1/2 oz. sugar syrup
  • several dashes bitters
Combine sugar syrup and scotch in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Float bitters on the top of the drink.
