We here at Bourbon and Branch like to think that every drink we send out is noteworthy in itself. We take great care in putting together balanced and delicious recipes that are guaranteed to sooth the lips of the thirsty.
However, every now and then we stumble across a recipe that resonates even more profoundly with our clientele. A perfect example of this is our Laphroaig Project, which was created by B&B’s own Owen Westman. The Laphroaig Project is just one of those drinks that is much more than the sum of its parts.
It is a scotch-based cocktail that is both tropical and refreshing, which in itself is intriguing to say the least. It has been described in the past as simultaneously deeply intellectual, yet wickedly visceral, and we couldn’t agree more.
That being said, guests continuously ask us for the recipe to this cooling masterpiece and now we are printing it here for your drinking pleasure.
The Laphroaig Project:
1oz Green Chartreuse
.5oz Laphroaig Quarter Cask
.5oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
.25oz Yellow Chartreuse
1oz Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Dashes Fee Peach Btters
Combine all ingredients into mixing tin and shake vigorously. Double-strain over the rocks into a double old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and enjoy.
