Drunk Uncle

Though the liquor swap is a simple one, the scotch Negroni is very much its own drink. “To a degree, all Negronis are chasing the same flavor profile: strong, balanced, bitter, with a sweetness from the vermouth,” says Shawn Soole, a bartender and consultant based in Victoria, B.C., who has been serving this scotch Negroni for eight years.

  • 1 1/2 oz Islay scotch (such as Bowmore or Laphroaig)

  • Garnish: Grapefruit twist
  1. Add all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
