This crisp and refreshing cocktail first appeared in the Savoy. With equal parts of Irish and Scotch whiskey, you get the best of both world and an unbeatable flavor. The refreshing taste comes from the lemon juice and the use of orgeat syrup as a sweetener-a concoction of sugar, almonds and rose or orange flower water. Tip: Yael notes that, “you can adjust the scotch depending on how peaty you want the drink to taste. For those that enjoy the taste of peat, I would recommend using something like Laphroaig 10 year or Compass Box Peat Monster.”
