Scotch • Dry
The Evolution

At Stoke in Charlotte, NC, this super-sized scotch cocktail is poured from a French press into a coffee cup. “So you can drink it at breakfast,” Sean Potter, the restaurant’s head of Eat and Drink, jokes. As the cocktail sits and steeps, the heavy, peaty scotch flavor dissipates, balanced by the herbaceous, savory thyme. Drink it how you like: Let it sit or plunge and pour right away. The choice is yours, as is the decision of whether or not to share it.
