Crane Kick

  • 2 ounces Yamazaki 12-Year Japanese Whisky
  • 1 teaspoon Laphroaig 10-Year Scotch Whisky
  • 2 teaspoons Kalani Ron De Coco Coconut Liqueur
  • 1 ounce Orange Juice
  • .5 ounce Lemon Juice

Short shake all the ingredients with 3 cubes of ice, then strain into a pilsner glass filled with crushed ice. Serve with a straw. No garnish.

BRAD FARRAN, 2012 I wanted to devise a tiki cocktail based on Japanese whiskey. But just a little bit of Kalani completely dominated the drink, so I added a teaspoon of peaty Scotch to balance it and create extra layers of depth.—BF
