Irish Kilt

I've been asked to do a cocktail with one of Teeling's reserve bottlings and I chose the single grain to make the Irish Kilt. Teeling single grain has a prominent malt character with honey notes on the nose and a long finish. It's lovely by itself, but works just fine in a cocktail that's designed to play up the malt character of whiskey.

You'll want to choose a soft scotch that stays out of the way of the single grain so that you can appreciate it, and if I had my druthers, I'd cut the lemon juice and simple syrup portions by half so that they don't drown out the interplay of malt and spicecake from the single grain.
  • 1 oz. scotch
  • 1 oz. Irish whiskey (Teeling single grain used)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • dash  orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
