I do love a good cocktail. I recently got to spend a few hours at a new pub in downtown Vancouver that’s only been open a few months. “Pub” really doesn’t cover all that The BlackBird is about. You can read more about in depth here. In that article, I share one of Jay Jones‘ recipes. It’s his take on a Cosmo, called The Pigalle (named after the classic Louboutin shoe, so adored by, among other women, his wife). Jay graciously shared with me a couple of his other recipes, as well, and I wanted to share one with you here. This is “The Bard.” No, not that Bard. The other Bard. Jay says: a nod to Robbie Burns with a Rob Roy inspired, spirit-forward cocktail of brawn and elegance. Malt, citrus, honey & spice define an understated virility. Here is the recipe to make your own, or simply head down to The BlackBird and have Jay or one of his staff make one for you.
1.5 oz The Glenlivet 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
