The Scotch Cobbler is a fun drink, particularly for those who aren’t crazy about scotch neat or on the rocks, but like it in cocktails. As with most Scotch cocktail recipes, you want a decent quality but not high-quality scotch for this drink.
Not only would using higher quality be a waste of a liquor that deserves to be savored on its own, but higher quality scotches don’t play well with others. They tend to have distinctive notes of flavor that don’t always blend with the other ingredients.
- 2 ounces scotch whiskey
- 1/4 ounce orange curacao or Cointreau
- 2 dashes simple syrup
Pour the ingredients into a wine orfilled with ice. Garnish it with seasonal fruit and/or mint sprigs.
