Editor Recipe Notes

Some years ago, I discovered this recipe construction in a book. But unfortunately, I can not remember the Book Title.
The drink was called “Cameron’s Kick” and what I really like about it is the combination of Blended Scotch and Almond Syrup. I have never tried it before, and even if you use 5cl of Whisky, the Drinks are really smooth. The Barrel-Aged Vanilla Oak Bitter gives a slightly creamy touch to the tongue and a subtle aftertaste.
You can use different Blended Scotch for this drink, and as an Almond Syrup, we just used the Orgeat from Giffard. So, this recipe is a no-brainer and easy to recreate.
