Wrap yourself in the warmth of this rich, cozy Scotch cocktail from Portland’s Multnomah Whiskey Library.
The Smoking Gun
Two notoriously assertive ingredients—Scotch and Fernet Branca—balance each other out in this flavorful after-dinner sipper.
The notoriously sea-salty, smoky bouquet of Islay Scotch is brought into the light with the addition of juicy-sweet elements like pear liqueur, fresh lemon juice and honey.
Named for the fictional heroine in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, this cocktail combines Scotch with two Italian aperitifs to make one stunning sipper.
Smoky, bold Scotch gets mellowed out with sweet, herbal Lillet and Benedictine. A bit of apricot brandy and a dash of bitters balance everything out.
The earthy richness of mezcal is paired with bitter orange and chocolate, then a few drops of smoky Islay Scotch boost this cocktail’s ethereal aromatics.
This potent combo of Scotch, heavy cream and beer takes its name from the infamous Norse god of wisdom, war and poetry, Odin.
