1⁄2 oz Irish whiskey, Connemara (or other peated whisk(e)y)
1 oz Cardamaro
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
3⁄4 oz Ginger-Honey Syrup
1⁄2 t Tamarind chutney
3 ds Bitters, Dr Adam Elmegirab's Orinoco Bitters
1 1⁄2 oz Vanilla Soda water
1 pn Nutmeg (as garnish)

Shake, strain over one large ice cube in a mustache cup* or highball, top with vanilla cream soda, garnish.


A mustache cup was used by 19th Century sporting men to keep their tipples out of their mustaches. For more on the sporting class, see Wondrich's Imbibe!


This will probably remain the only drink on KindredCocktails to specify tamarind chutney.
