Celtic Mix, Irish and Scotch cocktail

This was obviously a drink created on a ferryboat traveling between Ireland and Scotland. And from the spirit proportions, the coast of Scotland must have just come into view. The original recipe has this served in a cocktail glass. We’ve re-calibrated it for an old-fashioned glass.

Celtic Mix Celtic Mix vert
1 1/2 ounce Scotch
1 ounce Irish whiskey
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 dash Angostura bitters

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with several ice cubes. Shake vigorously. Strain over ice into an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Tasting notes: Lemon brings out the smokiness of the scotch.

Tomorrow: Purple rain cloud
