Mariner | Cocktail Party

Mariner

Mariner cocktail with scotch, cardamom syrup, pineapple juice, and lemon juice

The Mariner is a masterful blend of smoke and spice, from none other than the fantastic John Deragon at PDT.

PDT uses Compass Box Oak Cross for their scotch, a milder blend without the huge peat bog flavors of, say, a Laphroaig. If you have a Japanese whiskey on hand, that’d work just as well.

The original recipe calls for black cardamom syrup, which has a smokier flavor than the usual green cardamom – but we admit we couldn’t tell much of a difference in the versions that we tried, so use whatever cardamom syrup you like.
