Jessie Duré of New York’s Chumley’s enhances the smoky spice of Islay scotch by adding a touch of mastiha—an earthy, floral Greek, evergreen liqueur—and a proprietary blend of sweet vermouth and Aperitivo Select—a bitter Italian aperitif. This elegant take on a Scotch & Soda is hefty and round, with a bright, tart start and a distinctly smoky Islay finish. According to Duré, it’s a real love it or hate it cocktail. “If people don’t like it, they hate it,” she says. “But if they do like it, it’s the only thing they want to drink.”
