This drink is from New York Bartender’s Guide by Sally Ann Berk, a wide ranging collection of cocktails from 17 New York bartenders. In a world constantly asking “Scotch? In a cocktail?” this may be an answer with the sweet, tang and carbonation of the cider providing a nice balance to the scotch in a highball glass.
2 ounces blended scotch
Dash Angostura bitters
Chilled sparkling apple cider (non-alcoholic)
Pour scotch and add bitters over several ice cubes in a highball glass. Stir to combine. Top with cider and stir a few times.
