Isle of Pleasure

This cocktail is my own version of the  Commodore. Normally the Commodore has only lemon juice or only lime juice, but I like to use both in combination.  The ratio of whisky to lemon and/or lime should be 4 to 1 which makes this a boozey but delightful bar drink.

Although the Commodore is usually made with rye whisky, I made this cocktail with the Murray McDavid Isle of Jura 16 Year old Scotch Whisky, the result is an hedonistic delight which I have decided to call:

The Isle of Pleasure

2 Oz Scotch Whisky
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/4 oz Fresh lemon juice
1 to 2 tsp sugar syrup

Build in a rocks glass with Ice
Garnish with a threads of orange peel

And please remember…the aim is not to drink more…it is to drink better!
