  • I'm not a huge fan of Drambuie, but this was a wonderful sour. I used dark rum and Peychaud's. Update: second time around even better. white rum with dark, no bitters
  • Refreshing. A Sprite for grown-ups. The optional Peychaud's dashes are a must I think, for depth. — ★★★★

Moderated in response to a request from Michael Bowers to clarify that he didn't create the drink, but rather only added the bitters. Also increased the Drambuie to correspond to David Wondrich's recipe in Esquire.

Thanks Dan, honestly, I don't remember where I first read this recipe that cited Michael Bowers to it.....I am usually careful before naming the creator. My apologies Michael.

Shake with crushed ice, strain into collins glass with a few ice cubes. Then top with club soda.
