Improved Scotch Cocktail

[Photo: Nick Guy]

This cocktail from Kyle Davidson of Blackbird in Chicago adds herbal Benedictine and orange bitters to a flavorful base of Scotch whisky and honey.

Note: To make demerara syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup demerara sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Demerara syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
