2 oz Scotch, Monkey Shoulder
1 oz Falernum, BroVo
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice

Shake all ingredients with ice for 15 seconds, strain into an old iced fashioned glass rinsed with Laphroiag 10 (or other peated scotch). Garnish with an expressed lemon swath.


BroVo Lucky Falernum is a much higher proof (70 proof), less sweet and strongly flavored liqueur than Velvet Falernum. I haven't tried it with Velvet, but you'd probably have to drop it to .75 oz with perhaps a barspoon of pimento dram to kick up the spice level.
