Cocktail Inspiration:

I was lucky enough to travel to Scotland with my family recently. One of my favorite days of the trip was when we went Scotch tasting. And we tasted and tasted and tasted. What an amazing experience. Smokey. Peaty. Citrusy. Herbal. Floral. By the time we finished tasting we were more than ready for a strong cup of tea and a cake or two. This cocktail gave me an opportunity to combine both of those experiences in one glass. Smokey, sweet, citrus, with a bite.
