the adventures of peat & peat

1 1/2 oz A.D. Rattray Cask Islay Scotch
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Orgeat
3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass. Garnish with a pineapple slice and an orchid.

Two Mondays ago, Andrea and I trekked up to Woburn to have dinner at the Baldwin Bar at Sichuan Garden II. For a first drink, I asked bartender Vannaluck Hongthong for The Adventures of Peat & Peat. Van described how the bar had a large stash of Scotch, and he and Patrick Andrew did some R&D to come up with this Tiki number that paid tribute name-wise to a children's television series from the 1990s. I was definitely into the idea for the combination of ingredients reminded me of the Bitter Scotsman with a different citrus as well as the addition of pineapple juice.
The Adventures of Peat & Peat welcomed the senses with a pineapple and floral bouquet. Next, a creamy and tropical sip transitioned into a smoky, nutty, and bitter swallow with a lime-tinged finish.
