Eleven/Eleven a Scotch Cocktail

Eleven/Eleven is a Scotch cocktail made special with the addition of Hart Brothers Bowmore 11 Year Old Scotch Whisky. Of course you may use any kind of scotch you like, but the peat-smudged smoke of a single malt brings a certain elegance to the glass.

You don’t need to dry shake if you are not using egg white.

Eleven/Eleven a Scotch Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1 cup applejack
  • 11 cardamom pods (lightly cracked)
  • 2 ounce Hart Brothers Bowmore 11 Year Old Scotch Whisky
  • ½ ounce maple syrup
  • ½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon egg white
  • 1 lemon wheel (as garnish)

Directions

Make the cardamom infusion: Pour applejack into a 2‑cup lidded jar; add cardamom pods. Cover tightly with lid and shake gently. Place in a dark, cool area and shake gently every few days. After two weeks, strain infused applejack into a clean jar or bottle. This makes more than you need for one cocktail. Store covered in a cool dark place.

Make the cocktail: Pour 1 ounce infused applejack, scotch, maple syrup, lemon juice and egg white (if using) into a cocktail shaker. Cover and vigorously “dry shake” for about 30 seconds to combine. Uncap, fill the shaker 2/3 full with medium ice cubes, and shake vigorously until frothy, at least 30 seconds. Using a Hawthorn strainer, double strain through a wire-mesh sieve over one extra-large ice cube into a double old fashioned glass. Wait a moment for the foam to rise, then garnish with a lemon wheel.
