This simple-looking cocktail from Gramercy Tavern's fall lineup boasts a surprisingly complex flavor profile. The elegantly layered drink mixes belly-warming Scotch with slightly sweet pear liqueur, plus nutty walnut liqueur and Oloroso sherry.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 ounce pear liqueur, such as Belle de Brillet
  • 2 ounces blended Scotch, such as Famous Grouse
  • 1/2 ounce oloroso sherry, such as Lustau Oloroso "Emperatriz Eugenia"
  • 1/4 ounce Purkhart walnut liqueur
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • Orange twist

Directions

  1. 1.

    Chill an old-fashioned glass and rinse with pear liqueur, discarding any left in the bottom.

  2. 2.

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add Scotch, sherry, walnut liqueur, and bitters. Stir for until very cold, about 15 seconds, then strain into pear-rinsed glass.

  3. 3.

    Curl orange twist over the drink to express oils, rub it zest-side down around the rim of the glass, and then discard twist and serve cocktail.
