lake george

1 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey (Teeling Small Batch)
1 oz Glenlivet Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
1/2 oz Drambuie
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
For a drink idea two Friday nights ago, I reached for the PDT Cocktail Book and discovered the Lake George that I had never made before. This Whiskey Sour was crafted by Brian Shebairo while vacationing on the shores of Lake George in Winter 2009, and it featured a split base of Irish and Scotch whisk(e)y sweetened with Drambuie. Once prepared, the Lake George let out a honey, malt, and hint of peat to the nose. Next, lemon, honey, and malt mingled on the sip, and the swallow rolled in with the Scotch being more dominant than the Irish whiskey all with a honey-herbal finish.
