I found inspiration in Van Morrison's song, "You Just Can't Win". He starts it with the line "One more coffee, on more cigarette", and later sings about taking a tube to Camden Town, a london discrit where they probably enjoy their gin, coffee and cigarettes.

It's an egg white sour that tastes citrusy from the gin, amaro and lemon, but you can definitely taste the star of the cocktail, Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee liqueur, while the scotch and it's smoky nose add complexity to the drink.



 1.50 fl oz London Dry Gin
 1 fl oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.50 fl oz Amaro Averna
 0.75 fl oz Lemon Juice
 2 dashes Orange Bitters
 1 tbsp Peated Islay Scotch Whisky (rinse)
 1 Egg White



Rinse a chilled coupe glass with Peated Islay Scotch


Combine all the ingredients into your cocktail shaker


Dry shake, and then shake again with ice


Double Strain inside the coupe, and garnish with an orange twist after expressing its oils on top of the cocktail
