Monaco Friar

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

One of Anthony Schmidt’s favorite drinks is the Monaco Friar. “I love how the honey and herbal qualities of the Bénédictine pair with a fine Scotch,” he says. “It’s a perfect drink during the colder months.”

  1. Ice
  2. 2 ounces Scotch
  3. 1/2 ounce Bénédictine (brandy-based herbal liqueur)
  4. 3 dashes of Angostura bitters
  5. 1 lemon twist, for garnish
  1. Fill a chilled rocks glass with ice. Add the Scotch, Bénédictine and bitters; stir well. Garnish with the lemon twist.
