Inspired by a famous cocktail named Penicillin, this one is for the smoke lover. Single malt Islay Scotch is heady with smoke from the burning peat used to dry the grains. If Scotch isn’t your thing, the cocktail works beautifully with Reposado Mezcal, another smoky liquor, as well.

1. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine 1¼ oz Islay Single Malt Scotch, 1 oz Honey Thyme Syrup (recipe follows) and ½ oz lemon juice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice. Garnish with a thyme sprig and lemon peel. Using a kitchen torch, ignite the ends of the thyme sprig and serve.

Makes 1 cocktail

HONEY THYME SYRUP
In a small pot, combine ½ cup (125 mL) honey, ½ cup (125 mL) water and 3 branches thyme. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and let stand 15 minutes. Strain and chill.

Makes 1 cup (250 mL)
