The Cure-All

Serious Eats Autumn Giles Post a comment

With the same flavor base as thePenicillin—lemon, ginger, and Scotch—this foundation of this drink is already a delicious antidote to a long, cold day. Adding a shot of beet juice just ups the curative ante. More

Scotch, Sherry, and Concord Cocktail

Serious Eats Autumn Giles 1 comment

With alternating smoky, nutty, and jammy notes, this cocktail plays up the complexity of Concord grapes. More

Tonka Bean Ice Cream with Scotch Caramel Swirl

Serious Eats Anna Markow 1 comment

This ice cream is something special. The flavor of tonka bean makes the ice cream taste surprisingly like my favorite storebought flavor, Cherry Garcia. And though the caramel contains no butter, the caramel swirl is decidedly buttery and savory from the smoky scotch. More

Raines Law Room's Wildest Redhead

Serious Eats Jaclyn Einis Post a comment

The Wild Redhead appeared in the 1977 book, Jones' Complete Barguide. Raines Law Room's Meaghan Dorman added allspice dram and blended Scotch to make the Cherry Heering and lemon cocktail more interesting. More

DIY Drambuie

Serious Eats Marcia Simmons 1 comment

This DIY version of Drambuie isn't a carbon copy of the original—and that's the point. You can play around with flavors to create your ideal Scotch-and-honey masterpiece. More

The Devil's Backbone from Lolinda

Serious Eats Lauren Sloss Post a comment

Much as he loves the smoky flavor of peated scotch, Lane acknowledges that an entire cocktail made with it is pretty aggressive. To avoid having that smoke be all you can taste, Lane cuts the flavor with a bit of spicy rye. More

Gramercy Tavern's Goodfellow

Serious Eats Maryse Chevriere Post a comment

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. More

North End Grill's Bloody Smoky

Serious Eats Erin Zimmer Post a comment

Dipping Daisy

Serious Eats Melody Fury Post a comment

The punch of Scotch is softened with some honey, lemon, and aromatics in this cocktail from Brandon Burke of Haddingtons in Austin, Texas. Sweet and floral, this easy-sipping cocktail is soothing in the winter and patio friendly in the spring. More

Sepia's Death & Taxes

Serious Eats Roger Kamholz Post a comment

The base spirit of this cocktail, Sheep Dip blended Scotch whisky, gets its name from an old term Scottish farmers used to disguise casks of homemade hooch. To avoid taxes (and the disapproval of their wives) they labeled barrels of bootleg Scotch as Sheep Dip, an insecticide used to delouse sheep. More

Scotch Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz 3 comments

This is everything vanilla ice cream should be: impossibly rich and smooth with deep notes of honey, caramel, and flowers. A good Highland Scotch (I'm partial to Glenlivet 12) brings out the best flavors of vanilla while also adding depth. There's a good amount of salt to keep you coming back for another bite. Add salt slowly and adjust it to your tastes. More

Butterscotch Eggnog

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 2 comments

The smokiness of Scotch pairs nicely with light brown sugar in this eggnog variation. More

Presbyterian Revenge

Serious Eats The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

So named because it makes use of a liqueur from Italy, a Catholic nation; it's an intensely bitter drink of Black Grouse shaken with the artichoke liqueur, lemon, and a sparing splash of simple syrup More
