The Special Relationship

12 oz Rye
12 oz Bourbon
12 oz Scotch (blended or a mild single malt, like Glenfiddich)
12 oz Apple brandy, Lairds
14 oz Demerara syrup
2 ds Orange bitters (Bittercube barrel aged)
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 bsp Scotch, Laphroaig
1 twst Orange peel (as garnish)
1 twst Lemon peel (as garnish)
Combine all except garnish in a mixing glass with ice. Stir well, pour into old fashioned glass half-filled with ice (preferably one big rock). Cut and twist wide orange and lemon peels over glass, adding to glass as garnish.
I needed a cocktail that combined Scotch, bourbon and rye. I started from The Conference, and riffed from there.
