About this Cocktail

Spin off my Reverend George cocktail.

# edit número duo

I went back to my previous version with grapefruit and celery bitters. I increased the celery bitters ratio to 3 to 1. And now it's lovely.

# edit número uno

I was thinking that maybe the Celery and grapefruit bitters are trying to do the same thing a bit too much. I tried a variation with celery bitters and Dr Elmegirab's boker's bitters.

- 50 ml black grouse
- 3 dashes Celery bitters ( to brighten the cocktail )
- 2 dashes Boker's bitters ( to give it a more classic backbone )
- pinch of smoke sea salt
- 1 brown sugar cube.

Let me know what you think.
Sadly it can't be a sea Sheperd anymore. Sea shepherds have salty dogs :)

Tomorrow I'll try the reversed version ( grapefruit + Boker's )

  • 50 ml Black Grouse Whisky
  • 3 dashes Fee Brothers Celery Bitters
  • 1 dashes Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit Bitters
  • 1 pinch of smoked sea salt
  • 1 brown sugar cube
  • 1 toasted Nori Strip

Muddle sugar, salt and bitters with a splash of water. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the whisky, stir lightly and garnish with the Nori strip, immersed in the drink.

The smoked sea salt gives a hearty substance to the smoky hootch.
