41 Days of Drinks (day 35)

• This is the latest entry in a daily feature that is running through New Year's Eve. To provide it, I combed through all sorts of sources -- my own archives, bar books, distillers' ideas, etc. -- even press releases from breathless PR people seeking to get their clients' products mentioned.

This is a very easy to drink cocktail that its creators guarantee "will put some fire in your sporran ready for real Scottish Highland ice and winds." Having experienced the blustery Highland weather, I can attest to the need for fortification.


1½ measures of your favorite Scotch whisky
½ measure apricot brandy
1 measure orange juice
Dash of Angostura bitters
Ice cubes

Put all the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously, then strain into a large, chilled cocktail glass with a few ice cubes, and sip through a straw.
