For my nightcap at Russell House, I was intrigued by the Scottish Play. Bartender Aaron Butler described how it started as a variation of a Negroni, and once he realized that Campari proved to be an obstacle in developing the drink, he swapped it out and the drink morphed into the Scottish Play. Taking from the fact that Aaron mentioned that Russell House has become one of Laphroaig's biggest accounts in the area, I gather that the Scottish Play has become an instant hit. And hopefully with that, Cynar will become the new Fernet.
