The Smoking Sour

A sophisticated drink for Halloween.

1.5 oz Johnnie Walker Double Black (or any really smokey scotch)
1.5 oz Campari
3/4 oz Bramble Wild Blackberry Brandy
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
5 dashes Regan’s orange bitters
5 dashes Bitter Truth aromatic bitters (can substitute Angostura, but you’d probably need a few more dashes since it’s not as bitter)
Lemon Twist (garnish)

Stir the lot in a Boston Shaker with ample ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon to offset the blood-like color.
