“M[e]llow and Toasted”
Recipe by Graham Comstock
- 2 oz. Harleston Green Scotch
- .75 oz. Brown Sugar Simple Syrup
- 1 oz. Heavy Cream
- 2 dashes Chocolate Bitters
- 1 dash Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract
- Cedar Wood Smoked Glass
Preparation: Combine ice and all ingredients in tin and hard shake. Double strain into smoked glass. Toast handmade scotch infused marshmallow on glass enough to create a crust, but not to melt entire marshmallow. Top cocktail with nutmeg and cinnamon.
Garnish: Harleston Green Scotch Toasted Marshmallow
Glassware: Coupe Glass
Two things are synonymous with campfires; marshmallows (s’mores) and whiskey. I wanted to capture the entire experience in a glass, hence the creation of m[e]llow & toasted. The cedar smoke will give you the nose of the crackling fire, and the bitters that of melting chocolate. The smooth subtle whiskey combined with cream will warm your insides on even the coldest night. Lastly the marshmallow will bring you back to a time when things were simpler, while providing a nice, adult aftertaste. Grab a guitar, mellow out with some friends and get toasted!
