Barbados by Night

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)
