Whiskey CocktailsSmoky Single Malt
6 oz smoky single malt whiskey, like Laphroaig 10-year
2 teaspoons Grade A maple syrup
splash of Angostura bitters
Islay, off the western coast of Scotland, produces some of the world’s finest whiskies. When you’re drinking the best, simple is key, so this is a riff on an Old Fashioned with a bit of maple syrup to sweeten the smoke.
Yield: 2 servings
Fill two glasses halfway with ice. Add 1 teaspoon and a splash of bitters to each glass. Add scotch, and give the drink a stir.
