Statler’s Dream

Statler’s Dream

  • 2.0 oz. Apple brandy (Laird’s bonded)
  • 0.5 oz. Kina L’Aéro d’Or
  • 0.25 oz. Drambouie
  • 0.25 oz. Nux Alpina Walnut liqueur

Stir with ice then strain over rocks in tumbler. Spritz with peaty scotch.

Here’s a strong one to put some stuffing in your muppet (sorry). 100 proof apple brandy serves as the base with walnut and Drambouie adding the sweet and nuttiness. To this sort of twist on a Godfather I added a good amount of the bitter Kina for balance. The scotch on the nose is the final touch.

So apples and walnut made me think of a Waldorf salad. Which made me think of the Muppet old codgers. Thus Statler’s Dream, as even in repose he is paired with his heckling partner. Drink up before the curtain (or insult) falls.
