puates delight

1/3 Johnny Walker Red Label (1 oz Famous Grouse Scotch)
1/3 Passion Fruit Juice (1 oz)
1/3 Caloric Punch (1 oz Homemade Swedish Punsch)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I added an orange twist.
After getting back from the Sunday Salon, we were in the mood for a nightcap so I made the Puates Delight from the Café Royal Cocktail Book. The drink started with the orange oils from the twist which paired rather well with the passion fruit aroma. On the sip, the passion fruit juice and the lemon in the Swedish Punsch combined to make an apple-like flavor, and this was followed by a lingering Scotch note on the swallow. The Scotch and Swedish Punsch worked splendidly together to produce more of a spicy Scotch than a smokey rum flavor.
