It’s Nocino tasting day! Made up a cocktail tonight with not one but two homemade liqueurs. Don’t have a name for it (maybe it already exists); feels like it might still be missing a note.

  • 2 oz. Scotch whisky (I used Johnnie Walker Red)
  • .5 oz. nocino
  • .5 oz. krupnik (spiced honey liqueur)

Build in highball glass with ice, top with club soda.

It’s pretty good. I’ve made it without the nocino and the honey and whisky work together just fine. The nocino adds a nice deeper note to it I like. Pretty sweet though. Maybe some bitters of some kind. Doesn’t need much else.
