Lord Bullingdon's Revenge

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Mike Ryan created this drink after reading William Thackeray’s The Luck of Barry Lyndon and watching Stanley Kubrick’s film version of the novel. In the story, the character Lord Bullingdon wounds Lyndon in the leg in a duel. “The Scotch echoes the smoke from the old-style pistols they used,” says Ryan. “Chartreuse represents the medicinal herbs used in the poultice for Lyndon’s leg.”

  1. 1/4 ounce green Chartreuse
  2. Ice
  3. 1 ounce blended Scotch
  4. 1 ounce smoky single-malt Scotch
  5. 1/4 ounce crème de cacao
  6. Dash of Angostura bitters
  7. Dash of Fee Brothers Old Fashion aromatic bitters
  8. 1 lemon twist
  1. Rinse a chilled rocks glass with the Chartreuse; pour out the excess. Fill a pint glass with ice. Add both Scotches, the crème de cacao and both bitters; stir well. Strain into the rocks glass, pinch the twist over the drink and discard.
