Take your medicine — a better Penicillin

My pal Brian at work turned me onto the Penicillin, a drink of blended Scotch whisky, lemon juice, honey syrup, and a dash of peaty single malt. I love it, yet somehow I want more smoke.

Here's my take... hopefully it staves off any viruses you may encounter.

A Better Penicillin

2 oz blended Scotch Whisky like Monkey Shoulder
.75 oz lemon juice
.5 oz honey simple syrup
.25 oz peaty single malt like Ardbeg an Oa
Liquid smoke to taste
Scofflaw Bourbon County Reserve Bitters or other smoky bitters

Add ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker, shake, and pour into a tumbler over an ice ball.

  • After shaking, strain into a random glass, lose the ice, and add the mixture back to your shaker with an egg white or whole egg. Dry shake to combine, then strain into a chilled coupe to make a flip for some silky, smoky deliciousness.
  • Spice it up with 1-2 drops doTERRA On Guard essential oil
