Mixologist: Duke of Argyll

Some people think that scotch can’t make a good cocktail, or that scotch is too precious for a cocktail, or that even if you can make a scotch cocktail, it couldn’t possibly be a light cocktail. To them we say: try this one.

If you don’t have sage leaf syrup, use agave syrup. You can skip the peach bitters if you want, but we find they add a certain je ne sais quoi.


1 oz. Laphroaig Quarter Cask
.5 oz. Green Chartreuse
.75 oz. lemon juice
.75 oz. sage leaf syrup
2 dashes peach bitters
Ginger beer to top
Green apple fan garnish


Fill a Boston shaker with ice. Pour in Laphroaig, Chartreuse, lemon juice, syrup, and bitters. Shake well. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with green apple fan.
