Stir, strain, up, garnish.


The ingredient list would suggest flavors going in many different directions, but they hold together nicely. Well balanced.


Newcomb considers this a twist on a Brooklyn. He named it after the Trainspotting movie.

Love this one so much. Everytime a real pleasure. One of the rare cocktails were the sum of all the ingredients morf into something new.

Works well with bourbon too.

Used 10th Mountain Rye, Luxardo, orange peel. Lovely, complex, a bit sweet.
