Scotch Mist Instructions

The Scotch Mist is a classic cocktail that perfectly balances the smoky flavor of Scotch whisky with the refreshing sweetness of lemon juice and simple syrup. This drink is a great choice for those who enjoy the complexity of Scotch but also want a touch of citrus.

To make a Scotch Mist, you will need a highball glass, a cocktail shaker, ice, Scotch whisky, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Begin by filling the highball glass with ice to chill it. Then, in the cocktail shaker, combine 2 ounces of Scotch whisky, 1 ounce of lemon juice, and 1/2 ounce of simple syrup. Shake the mixture vigorously for about 10 seconds to ensure that all ingredients are well combined and chilled.

Next, empty the ice from the highball glass and strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into the glass. The chilled glass will help keep the drink cool without diluting it further. If desired, you can garnish the Scotch Mist with a twist of lemon peel or a cherry, but these are optional.

Once your Scotch Mist is ready, take a moment to appreciate the aromas of the Scotch whisky and the bright notes of lemon. Take a sip, and savor the perfect balance of flavors that this cocktail offers. The smokiness of the Scotch is complemented by the tartness of the lemon juice and the sweetness of the simple syrup, creating a truly enjoyable drinking experience.

Whether you're a seasoned Scotch drinker or someone who wants to explore the world of whisky cocktails, the Scotch Mist is a must-try. Its simplicity and balance make it a versatile drink that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of foods. So raise a glass, and enjoy the Scotch Mist!

Best served in a Collins Glass.
