Coasta de Morte

1 14 oz Blended Scotch (John Barr)
1 14 oz Lillet Blanc
1 14 oz Maurin Quina
1 ds Orange bitters
Stir, strain, chilled lowball, straight (no ice)
A brilliant take on a Blood and Sand
From other users
  • Fantastic. The use of the blended whiskey keeps the scotch flavor in check with the Lillet and Maurin Quina. A really fabulous drink, even for the non-Scotch lover. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Made with mix of 2/3 nepeta amaro and cherry brandy . Tried again with averna and a shot of cherry grappa and probably better — ☆☆☆☆

Wow, this is good. I used

Wow, this is good. I used cocchi instead of lillet since it was open. I bought a bottle of scotch so I could try this since I love maurin quina; I got black bottle, a cheapie blend as I wasn't sure I'd like smoky whiskey, but it turns out I'm a fan.

Thanks for the Cocchi

Thanks for the Cocchi suggestions - was out of Lillet and Cocchi and used Campari instead. Used Kilchoman Islay whiskey and drink was awesome - nice and smokey with great complexity!
