Drink of the Week: The Big Poppa

It’s true I’ve been on a bit of a scotch run since returning from Scotland with no less than 1.9 litres of whisky. The customs agent happily waved me through, proud (I surmised) that a woman was bringing so much single malt into the country.

Of course, the whisky was for my husband, who also happens to be a great dad to our two children. With Father’s Day looming, I wish I could say the scotch was his Dad Gift, but it’s been six weeks since I got back and the bottle of Bruichladdich Islay Barley is almost gone.

While it seems a shame to mix this whisky with anything, to make it last longer I’ll be making this drink for Blake on Sunday. The Big Poppa for Dad. Happy Father’s Day!

The Big Poppa

  • 1-1/2 oz scotch (I used Bruichladdich)
  • 1/2 tsp orange liqueur (I used Cointreau)
  • 1 twist orange peel

Method: Combine scotch and orange liqueur in a stem-less martini glass. Add a twist of orange peel and serve to Dad on Father’s Day.
