Newsletter 30: Lark Tasmanian Whisky and MacGavin’s Single Malt Scotch

Posted in Newsletters on September 26, 2012 by becca

Another exceptional OCBC meeting! Sponsored and featuring Lark Tasmanian Whisky, and MacGavin’s Single Malt Scotch. We were lead on a masterful tour of Whiskey by the lovely Monique and hosted fantastically by Memphis at the Santora which is always wonderful setting. We got in a bunch of learning, we all had a terrific time, some incredible drinks and delicious food—thanks for having us!

First up we were greeted by a delectable punch crafted by the gents at Memphis at the Santora, and the recipe is:

Eastern Indian Punch
2 oz MacGavin’s Speyside Scotch
0.75 Tamarind Syrup
0.5 Lemon Juice
Whip all ingredients with a few pieces of shell ice and dump into a collins glass with ice
Top with soda
Garnish with a lemon wedge

::Tamarind Syrup::
Boil tamarind pods (removed from the shell) in water until all of the tamarind flavor is extracted
Strain out the solids and dissolve 1 part turbinado sugar to 1 part tamarind liquid
Enjoy!!!

Then we were dazzled by a couple cocktails to go with tasty food and they were:

Rusty Nail
2 oz MacGavin’s Lowland Scotch
0.5 oz Drambuie

2 dash Regan’s Orange Bitters
Stir all ingredients over ice and strain into a double old fashioned glass with fresh ice
Garnish with a lemon peel

Adderly (variation)
2 oz MacGavin’s Highland Scotch
0.75 oz Maraschino Liqueur
0.75 oz Lemon Juice
2 dash Regan’s Orange Bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass

Next up, it is DC Craft Spirits, bringing their Cognac, Mezcal, Rum and other treats on Monday October 1st! We are expecting a great meeting—definitely not to be missed.
