Le Père Bis

from PDT

  • 4 oz. Freshly Brewed Chamomile Tea
  • 1.5 oz. Ardbeg 10-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • .5 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • .5 oz. Honey Syrup

Add everything to a pre-heated heatproof mug and stir. Garnish with a lemon wedge studded with three cloves.

In 2006, Rob Cooper asked me to create a hot drink with St. Germain. To prove that the liqueur could tame one of the most powerful spirits, I mixed it with one of Islay's legendary peat monsters. —Jim Meehan, Winter 2008
