The Remaining Balance Cocktail

Jason Littrell came up with the name for this cocktail while looking at his gas bill. He uses Yamazaki 12 and Lagavulin 16 single malts to create the delicate flavor balance required to make this unlikely combination of ingredients work.

1 oz. Grand Marnier
3/4 oz. sweeter single-malt whisky
3/4 oz. Islay-style single-malt whisky
2 dashes Ramazotti amaro
3 dashes Angostura bitters
1 dash Fee Bros. grapefruit bitters
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: coupe or cocktail
Garnish: lemon twist

Stir all ingredients with ice, strain into chilled glass and garnish.

Jason Littrell, New York City
