Looking for a new way to enjoy Doorly's XO, try this Idea that I worked out the other afternoon in the "camper". It has a really dry taste, but that is what I was looking for. It is not the tart of the "Papa Doble", but is has a very naturally smooth and slightly sweet flavor.
Barbados by Night
· 2 oz. Doorly’s XO
· 1/2 oz. Drambuie
· 2 dashes Fee Brothers Old Fashion Bitters
· Lemon Twist
Preparation: Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice, stir until chilled and strain into a rocks glass, Twist the lemon oil from the zest and drop into the cocktail.
Give this one a try, I think that your will really like it. It brings back some the ideas of the classic cocktails by mixing the Drambuie with the dry rums of Richard Seale. ;o)
