I’ve been feeling the absence of cocktails from my life lately, so I just bought a copy of the Savoy Cocktail Book.
It’s got so many gems (the Bobby Burns, the Oriental, the Champs Elysees) and so many surprises (wine glasses seem to be a common measurement tool).
When I flipped to the page with the recipe for Cameron’s Kick, I thought it would be as good a place as any to dive in. It calls for scotch, Irish whisky, lemon and orgeat. I’m a fan of whisky sours, so I figured this would be comparable — with the richness of the egg in a sour substituted for the nutty, lightly fragrant addition of orgeat. If only I had some homemade orgeat on hand…nevertheless, this one will be a repeat.
1 oz blended scotch
1 oz irish whisky
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz orgeat
Shake & strain.
