song remains the same

2 oz Ardbeg Scotch (Royal Brackla 12 Year)
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Tuesday ago, I returned to Trevor Felch's San Francisco Cocktails where I landed upon the Song Remains the Same. This drink crafted at Foreign Cinema by Bryan Ranere was named after the 1976 Led Zeppelin behind-the-scenes concert film. Once mixed, the Song Remains the Same welcomed the nose with orange, smoky Scotch, and cherry aromas. Next, lemon, fruity, and honey notes on the sip shifted into Scotch and dry cherry flavors on the swallow with a honey finish.
