This cocktail won me a spot as a top three finalist in the 2013 Tales of the Cocktail Tales on Tap contest, sponsored by Drambuie. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend Tales this year, and had to forfeit my spot. The idea was to make a seasonally appropriate (for July) cocktail, heavy on the Drambuie, that lent itself to serving on tap. This one works just as well the old fashioned way. Drambuie supposedly came about when Bonnie Prince Charlie gave its recipe to John MacKinnon in gratitude for ferrying the Jacobite prince to the Isle of Skye.
