The Wind-Up

Chall Gray, Little Jumbo | Asheville, NC

“My wife loves Amaretto Sours and smoky Scotch, so I made this for her one night, and now it’s the reason we always have orgeat on hand at home,” says Asheville bartender Chall Gray. He describes this drink as a mash-up between two classics: an Amaretto Sour and the Irish or Scotch whiskey-based Cameron’s Kick. Laphroaig is a particularly smoky Scotch, so a little goes a long way.
