Super Drunk Uncle

Johnny Swet, Grand Republic Cocktail Club, Brooklyn, NY

This playful drink gets a double dose of Scotch: The two main components are Scotch and Drambuie, a honey- and spice-flavored liqueur made with a Scotch whisky base. Pour whatever whisky is on hand for this versatile cocktail, since either a smooth blended Scotch or a peat-forward version works beautifully.
