I'm using an Irish Whiskey to make a Smokey Robinson opposed to a Bourbon, with the highly decorated Single Grain from Teeling Whiskey.
🥃40ml @teeling_whiskey Single Grain
🍸20ml @doshombres Mezcal
🍁20ml Maple-Spiced Syrup*
🍋20ml Fresh Lemon Juice .
*to make the Syrup;
• 1/2 Cup Maple syrup
• 1/2 Cup Water
• 2 Star Anise
• 2 Cinnamon Sticks • 5 Whole Cloves
In a small pot/saucepan, add all of the syrup ingredients. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat. Cover and let stand for at least 30 mins, then strain into a clean container. This syrup will keep for up to 3 weeks and serve 10 cocktails
🍹To make the cocktail;
In a cocktail shaker or well sealed jar/container.. combine whiskey, mezcal, maple-spiced syrup and lemon juice. Add ice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with lemon twist and enjoy!
