Created by bar manager Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli, this cocktail was mentioned in our First Taste of Craigie On Main in Cambridge, Massachusetts as having a “spectrum of refreshing flavors. That might account for why it is now the #1 favorite of customers there. It's a great drink for those who think they don't like Scotch. The liquor adds a subtle smokiness, but doesn'€™t overpower. You can substitute your choice of Scotch and use regular simple syrup for the Demerara, but the other brands are pretty much required to get the desired effect.
