Redheaded Scot

Redheaded Scot

  • 2.0 oz. (smoky or peaty) Scotch
  • 0.25 oz. Cherry Heering
  • 0.25 oz. Leopold Bros. Michigan Tart Cherry liqueur
  • 0.25 oz. ginger liqueur (King’s)
  • dash of orange bitters (Regans)

Stir with ice and strain into glass. Garnish with cherries and candied ginger.

I wanted to riff on the classic Scotch and liqueur prototype you see in the Rusty Nail or Godfather. In the end, instead of their simplicity, I ended with a mix of liqueurs and a bitter, but I was pretty happy with the result.

Took a while and iterations for the name. But the cherry and red color of the drink finally delivered. Slàinte Mhath!
