Long Pig [Cocktail Recipe]
July 6, 2020 –––––– Whisky Advocate
Nutty orgeat, fresh mint, and lively lemon lend a tiki vibe to this blended scotch cocktail from Zac Sorensen, formerbartender at Chicago's The Violet Hour. The phrase "long pig" is borrowed from Frederick O'Brien's 1919 travelogue of French Polynesia.
- 2 oz. Pig’s Nose blended scotch
- ¾ oz. orgeat syrup
- ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
- Garnish: a mint sprig and a dash of your favorite bitters (The Violet Hour prefers fig)
Build in a Collins glass with crushed or cracked ice, and garnish with a mint sprig and aromatic bitters.
