Bloody Presbyterian Cocktail Recipe

With cooler weather on its way, I think it’s time to start making scotch-based cocktails.

This variation on a classic presbyterian adds depth with Cynar, lemon juice, and a submerged blood orange wheel.


2 oz blended scotch
3/4 oz Cynar
1/4 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
1 dash orange bitters
1 blood orange wheel
Float with 1 oz club soda


Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Add club soda and garnish with blood orange.
