2 tablespoonssingle-malt, not-heavily-peated Scotch whisky, such as Glenlivet
1/4 teaspoonheavily peated Scotch whisky, such as Laphroaig
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Don’t let smoky Scotch scare you away from this drink—we use just a dash of the peaty stuff in this warming cup of cider (sort of like you’d use absinthe in a rinse). The bulk of the booze is a not-so-peaty whisky, to keep the overall drink balanced.
