An earthy interpretation of a Sazerac, featuring Catoctin Creek Rye, Birch Beer syrup made from local birch bark, and a peaty rinse of Laphroig. Served up in a glencairn glass. A great introduction to fall with a zesty and savory cocktail.
1.75 oz Catoctin Creek Rye
0.25 oz Benedictine
1 Teaspoon Birch Bark Syrup Laphroig 10 Year Scotch (For Rinse)
Lemon Peel (For Garnish)
Combine Rye, Benedictine, and Birch Bark Syrup in a mixing glass and stir until chilled. Rinse a glencairn glass with Laphroig 10 Year and dump. Express the lemon peel over the cocktail then discard.
