Amaro Lucano is a somewhat obscure Italian bitter, featuring notes of wormwood, gentian and spearmint. The amaro's long finish allow it to play with the freshness of the apple and subtle complexities in the Scotch.
60ml - Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whiskey
12.5ml - Amaro Lucano
4-5 chunks of fresh green apple
2 dashes - Peychauds Bitters
In a mixing glass or tin, muddle the apple chunks. Add the rest of the ingredients, fill with ice and stir.
Serve on ice.
Garnish with fresh apple.
