Straw Dog

Straw Dog sour cocktail with fresh strawberry, scotch whisky, blanc vermouth, lemon juice, simple syrup, and grapefruit bitters

The Straw Dog is a rare strawberry cocktail that isn’t overly-sweet; the single muddled strawberry provides a wonderful freshness not typically found in scotch-whisky drinks. It’s a masterful interplay of flavors, and we’d expect no less from its creator, the brilliant Thomas Waugh, of Death & Co.

Waugh calls for Compass Box Asyla, a mild, blended scotch. We’d stick with blended scotch rather than a big smoky single malt; it’s even lovely with the more muted flavors of Japanese whisky.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry in a shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients and ice, and shake well. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a fresh strawberry.

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have.
