Stir, strain, up.


A dry gin Martini crossed with Audrey Saunders' Dreamy Dorini Smoking Martini, with an assist from Kindred Cocktails user Jennx's Mezcal Martini. Name's a tip of the hat to the Obituary Cocktail.

  • This is a fairly clean tasting cocktail. I forgot to add the scotch, but I keep some Laphroaig in a mister and gave it a couple nice sprays to finish it off. — ★★★
  • Nice smoke element — ★★★★
  • If you like smoke and like martinis, you'll like this. Actually the smoke is gentler than expected, and a bit sour/salty (effectively serving as the martini's "olive"). — ★★★★

Nice! This has all my favorite things. I didn't have a Laphroaig like Scotch. Used Aberlour A'Bunadh which is all carmel, no smoke, but that tasted really good too.

Another good one, Rafa. Ilegal is about the best mezcal I can get here. It's not bad by any means, but I bet the drink is spectacular with a really good one.
