A Thanksgiving dish of roasted artichokes with brown sugar inspired L.A. bartender Karen Grill to combine artichoke-based Cynar with brown sugar syrup in this simple nightcap. Slideshow: Scotch Whiskey Cocktail Recipes

Recipe from Food & Wine Cocktails 2015

How to Make It


In a mixing glass, combine the Scotch, Cynar and Brown Sugar Syrup. Fill the glass with ice, stir well and strain into a chilled coupe. Flame the orange twist over the drink and drop it in.


Brown Sugar Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine 4 ounces water with 1/2 cup light brown sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool. Transfer the syrup to a jar and refrigerate for up to 1 month. Makes about 6 ounces.
