Whisky In Church Recipe
Sherry and Scotch whiskey make for a great pair in cocktails, particularly this one from Erik Reichborn-Kjennerud of Dalva in San Francisco. A take on Rob Roy, this drink substitutes the usual sweet vermouth with rich oloroso sherry to give it some depth.
At the same time, it adds maple syrup as well as dark, intense Grade B Maple Syrup bitters to round out all those flavors together into something really fantastic!
2 oz. Islay scotch
¾ oz. Oloroso sherry
1 Bar spoon grade B maple syrup
6 dashes Smoked cherry bitters
Lemon twist for garnish
Combine all ingredients with ice into a mixing glass.
Stir well until well-mixed.
Garnish with a lemon twist or slice.
Sherry is a secret ingredient in many of the world’s most famous cocktails, including The Piña Colada and Singapore sling. When Scotch whisky meets Sherry, it creates a fantastic balance between sweet flavors.
