Flavor Odyssey’s segment on emerging trends in cocktails continues, and this week, we explore a modern take on a somewhat modern cocktail. The Penicillin cocktail was invented in 2005, but we’re amping it up with maple syrup! On paper, this sounds like a perfect cigar pairing, and your hosts Robby and Randy dive head-first into the complex recipe.
Orange Maple Penicillin
1 orange slice
3 slices of fresh ginger
¾ ounce pure maple syrup
1 ounce blended Scotch whisky
¼ ounce smoky Islay single-malt Scotch whisky
1 ounce maple bourbon
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
Orange peel for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange slice, ginger, and the maple syrup.
Add the blended Scotch, single malt Scotch, maple bourbon, and lemon juice.
Add the ice and shake to chill.
Strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with the orange peel.
