lost in the supermarket

3/4 oz Laphroaig 10 Year Scotch
3/4 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
1/2 oz Drambuie
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Campari
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters
1 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I was writing up the Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co.'s Lonely Holiday for the blog. I recalled how I taught a co-worker a few days before about Phil Ward's Cornwall Negroni, and a mashup of the two concepts came about for the evening's libation. I kept with the Franklin's song title drink names and dubbed this after the Clash's Lost in the Supermarket. Once prepared, the Lost in the Supermarket gave forth an orange and peat smoke aroma with fruity undertones. Next, grape and honey notes on the sip filed into smoky Scotch and earthy bitter flavors on the swallow.
