PDT’s John deBary invented the Kansai Kick as a Japanese-inspired riff on Cameron’s Kick, with lightly-smoky Japanese whisky taking the place of a big boggy Scotch. To add a little complexity, deBary calls for a bit of Madeira’s raisiny, oxidized flavor. Brilliant!
- 1½ part Japanese whisky
- ¾ part Madeira
- ¾ part Lime juice
- 2½ tsp Orgeat
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.
