Two Thursdays ago, I reached for my new Difford's Guide to Cocktails #12 and decided on the Prospector. This was not the Kask or Pourhouse Prospector Cocktails, but one created by Thomas Waugh in 2010 when he was in San Francisco. Since Scotch and Madeira have paired well together in the Robin Wood and 91st Division, I was game to give this a go.
