Recipe Notes

As we mentioned before, we labeled the Isla Scotch mist as optional, realizing that some of you might not like Scotch, or may not have any on hand. However, the Scotch drizzle does give the cocktail a delightful smokey aroma without really compromising the flavor of the cocktail itself, so if possible we highly recommend giving it a couple of spritzes ☺And don't worry about brands so much, use whatever you have but the smokier the better. We used Laphroaig.
