rx sour

3/4 oz Glenfiddich Fire & Cane Scotch
1 oz El Dorado 12 Year Rum
3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Shake with ice, strain into an up glass, and garnish with an edible flower, lime twist, and pineapple leaf.

Two Wednesdays ago, we ventured up to the Baldwin Bar in Woburn for I had just learned that Backbar-alum Dan Braganca had returned from his adventures in Baltimore and started working there. For a first drink, I requested the Rx Sour that Dan mentioned was created by Ran Duan; I neglected to ask if the name was somehow inspired by the Prescription Julep (the only similarities are the split base spirits and the sugar though). Once mixed, the Rx Sour shared a smoke, floral, and lime bouquet to the nose. Next, malt and pineapple played on the sip, and the swallow was all about the smoky Scotch with a solid backbone from the Demerara rum. We tried to figure out where the floral notes were stemming from, and we deduced that it was either from the Scotch and pineapple like in the Gory Guerrero or perhaps the Scotch and lime.
