Alpine Meadows

Here is a cocktail which combines a tasty Single Malt Whisky (The Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve) with a wonderful dry gin from Berry Bros. & Rudd (London No. 3 Dry Gin). The two spirits are complimented by the light sweetness of Bols Triple Sec (chosen because of its crisp orange flavour and its lower alcohol content).

1 1/2 oz  Bourbon Cask Reserve Single Malt Scotch
3/4 oz No.3 London Dry Gin
3/4 oz Bols Triple Sec (sub any quality triple distilled orange liqueur)
Citrus Zest

Add the three ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with citrus zest

Although this recipe has been great with The Glenrothes whisky for which it was intended, I have found that it works extremely well for many other scotch whiskies.  I have used this recipe with outstanding success with these whiskies: Highland park 12 Year, Amrut Indian Single Malt, Johnnie Walker Gold Label, and Old Parr Superior 18 Year old.
