Blimey, Scotch cocktail

Blimey. There’s a word we may want to practice using this weekend as American football comes to London for the second time this season. The Atlanta Falcons face the Detroit Lions today. The Dallas Cowboys play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Nov. 9. All the games will be played at Wembley Stadium, where the other football (soccer to Yanks) is the national sport. We’ve blended bourbon and scotch with a nutty touch of amaretto and creme de cassis. (We’re working on a red wine and bourbon drink just on the off chance the NFL schedules a game in Paris.)

Blimey Blimey vert
1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1/2 ounce scotch
1/4 ounce amaretto
1/4 ounce creme de cassis

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with several ice cubes. Shake for 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a 2-inch orange twist.
