Hoo boy. Well, you can’t win ’em all. That’s really the only intro I have for this drink.
On the current events front, in something that will be old news by the time this goes up, Scotland is really sucking in the Six Nations rugby tournament. Sucking almost as bad as this drink does (eight straight losses). Rugby, though, is really cool actually, and the USA’s own Pro Rugby league is starting up this spring! Just don’t drink this while you’re watching.
205. Scotch Whiskey Skin
(Use small bar glass.) [Or a mug, because it’s hot. Or just don’t make this.]
- 2 oz. Scotch whiskey.
- 1 piece of lemon peel.
- Fill the tumbler one-half full with boiling water.
BN: In case it wasn’t abundantly clear, I hated this. It tasted like really hot watered-down scotch that was slightly bitter (from the lemon peel). So, exactly what it was. I generally like toddies, but they really need a sweetener in there. I’m not sure how anyone can drink this. There’s a small chance a stronger-flavored scotch could have made it better, like a Caol Ila, but I sincerely doubt it.
