Scotchy Gilmore

Recipe by Donald Dow

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz. Harleston Green Scotch
  • .75 oz. Lemon Juice
  • .75 oz. Agave Syrup
  • .5 oz. Cointreau
  • .5 oz. Giffard’s Pamplemousse
  • Cabernet Float

Preparation: Pour all ingredient, except for the Cabernet float, into a shaker tin. Add ice. Shake vigorously until all ingredients are emulsified. Pour over ice. Add soda. Top with a Cabernet float. Garnish.

Garnish: Orange Slice and a Cherry

Glassware: Hurricane Glass

Cocktail Inspiration:

I live in Phoenix, Arizona, the land of eternal sunshine and blistering heat, as well as the home of the Phoenix Open. The Phoenix Open is a pro-golfing tournament, as well as an excellent excuse to day drink. The inspiration stemmed from golf’s Scottish origins, and a stiff, yet surprisingly refreshing drink for a sunny day out on the greens.

Enjoy!
