Vintage Cocktails #74: The Vowel Cocktail

It’s been a while since I have mixed up a cocktail from Vintage Spirits, partly due to the fact that there are only a few left and partly because I am missing some ingredients. Luckily for me, one of my favorite bartenders in town happened to pick up some Kümmel on his last liquor excursion.

Called for in just a few drinks, this caraway flavored liqueur works well in this cocktail, blending in with the Scotch and Vermouth. It doesn’t stand out, but instead provides a subtle addition to the drink. Be sure to use a less peaty/smoky scotch in this one. Cheers!

The Vowel Cocktail
1oz Scotch Whisky
1oz Sweet Vermouth
1/2oz Orange Juice
1/2oz Kümmel
Dash Angostura Bitters
