Final Straw

23 oz Islay Scotch, Laphroaig Quarter Cask
23 oz Bénédictine
23 oz Yellow Chartreuse
23 oz Lemon juice
Shake over ice and double-strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass or coupette.
Original recipe calls for Chartreuse M.O.F. (Cuvée des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Sommeliers), but G. Regan subs Yellow Chartreuse. I was out of the Laphroaig and subbed Compass Box Peat Monster, and it worked well.

  • Sweet and sour but also earthy and smoky. Like lemonade that had been buried underground for a while. — ☆☆☆☆
  • nice boozy play on The Last Word, perfect for the fall. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • The sweetness of the Benedictine tames the smokiness. Very unique flavors. One of my favorites. — ☆☆☆☆☆
