Dan McGrew

An Old-Fashioned of sorts, but tough and mean with a bite on the finish. I’m still trying to get a feeling for how over-the-top I can go with the stone pine liqueur, but the housemate was favorable, describing this one as bracing and boozy.

Dan McGrew
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 oz Zirbenz Stone Pine Liqueur
  • 1 dash Fee Bros Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters
  • Ardbeg rinse
Stir bourbon, Zirbenz and bitters with ice. Coat the sides of a chilled glass with a small amount of Ardbeg or other very peaty malt. Strain the bourbon mixture into the prepared glass. Small lemon twist.
