Two whiskeys (Irish and single-malt Scotch) come together in this rich sour from Orson Salicetti of EVR in New York. We adapted the recipe slightly to our taste. Salicetti uses a housemade winter spice reduction to add depth, but you can substitute Angostura. If you like your cocktails tart, you may want to add a bit more lime.
- For the Agave Sour Mix:
- 2 ounces fresh juice from about 2 limes
- 1 ounce agave nectar
- For the cocktail:
- 1 1/2 ounces Jameson Irish whiskey
- 1/2 ounce single malt Scotch
- 1/4 ounce Pimm's
- 1 ounce agave sour mix
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- Garnish: orange twist
For the Agave Sour Mix: Mix lime juice and agave nectar until dissolved.
For Each Cocktail: Add Irish whiskey and Scotch to a mixing glass filled with ice. Add Pimm's, agave sour mix, and Angostura. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass, garnish with orange twist, and serve.
