Friday Night Cocktail

This is from My Daily Cocktail, and apparently made to ‘celebrate’ American Football coming to London. Apparently, the Atlanta Falcons played the Detroit Lions last weekend and there’s another game on Sunday at Wembley, home of actual football. I’m still not convinced (although Friday Night Lights makes a good case) that American Football isn’t just the bastard son of rugby but this cocktail is pretty good.

I found that it worked better with a peatier whisky than a lighter one. It’s a boozy cocktail so one is definitely enough but it may work for cocktail drinkers who like strong drinks but aren’t sure about whiskey (they do exist – they just are me!)
