1 oz
A whiskey made primarily from a corn grain mash, aged in charred oak barrels.
0.5 oz
An amaro made on the island of Sicily. A sweet, thick and slightly bitter amaro made from herbs, roots, citrus rinds and caramel. Typically 30% ABV.
0.5 oz
A citrus juice used in many cocktails, both for its sweet and tart taste and its color. Orange juice, unlike lemon and lime, can be kept fresh for days. In a blind taste test, most people liked day-old orange juice.
0.25 oz
Peat is a dried soil from peatlands, bogs, mires, moors and muskegs. In Scotland, peat fires are used to dry the malted barley, giving the whiskey a smoky flavor.
0.25 oz
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.

You know what eggs are. In cocktails, eggs are used for their foaming properties, giving the drink a rich and creamy texture. The eggs proteins form a 'net' that traps air and liquid extremely well; for this reason, drinks that contain eggs are shaken. They are also used for egg washing, a type of booze washing. Some cocktails use only the egg white (fizzes) and some use the whole egg or only the yolk (flips). There are common non-egg substitutes out there, check out insta-foam
3 dash
A concentrated aromatic bitters made in Trinidad from water, ethanol, gentian and other herbs and spices; used in many classic cocktails like the Manhattan.
3 dash
Dark, rich and complex. A bitter chocolate nose leads the palate to dark chocolate, cinnamon and spice flavors that are supported by classic European bitter herbs.
2 oz
Dark lager, brown ale, stout, porter, barley wine, these beers are characterized by their darker color and often relatively high alcoholic content.

Add all, except beer, to a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Top with ale and stir lightly. #shake #straight
