Moral of the Story – you can do a lot with just two ingredients! But unless you’re going to drown the spirit in sweetness, consider aiming for higher quality ingredients in two-ingredient cocktails.
Great episode! Thank you!
May I suggest as a wonderful two ingredient cocktail a riff on the Rusty Nail – the Padovani?
1.5 oz Scotch you love (Glenmorangie)
0.5 oz Elderflower Liqueur (St. Germain)
Surprisingly lovely! Complex, strong and yet sooooo easily drinkable…
JJ that sounds really good! Thanks for the suggestion!
