From Austin Purvis, Sub Rosa

This slightly smokey, summery cocktail is nothing like the lemonade your mother used to make. That’s for damn sure!

1-1/2 oz. Laphroaig Quarter Cask Scotch Whisky

1/4 oz. water

1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice

1/2 oz. Rosemary Syrup (recipe follows)

2 dashes Black Cloud Charred Cedar bitters

1 dash cranberry bitters

fresh rosemary sprig for garnish

Build the drink in a mixing glass and stir with ice to chill. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with the rosemary sprig.

Rosemary Syrup:

2 c. water

2 c. sugar

4 fresh rosemary sprigs

Combine water and sugar in a saucepan and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add the rosemary and simmer for 30 minutes. Cool, strain out the rosemary and refrigerate. Use as desired.

Makes one cocktail.
