1 part Palomino sherry 0.5 parts cloudy apple juice

0.5 parts Magic Cherry Syrups (cherries macerated in Aberlour a’bunadh and spices)

1 dash Orchard Bitters

The cocktail was then smoked with hickory wood chips and served in a chilled champagne coupe.

This was followed by:

Balblair 12 Years Old 2002 Bourbon Cask #680 – Distillery Edition ~ 58% (Balblair Distillery)
