Ivan Mitankin at New York City's Vintry Wine & Whiskey adapted this winter tipple from the “Savoy Cocktail Book,” creating a smoothly sophisticated drink that combines the best qualities of whiskey and citrus. The caramel notes of the Scotch bring a sweet balance to the silk-like texture of the Orgeat and change the character of the malt just enough to match up perfectly with the fresh lemon.

Ingredients

  • 2 Oz Speyburn 10 year Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
  • 3/4 Oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 Oz Orgeat
  • Freshly grated nutmeg

Preparation

Step 1:

Add all the ingredients except the nutmeg to a shaker full of ice. Then shake vigorously and serve in a large rocks glass over ice. Garnish the mix with freshly grated nutmeg and a lemon wedge. Then kick back and watch the snow-covered city.
