What do you do when your mother makes more marmalade than you have toast for? Use it in drinks. Taking inspiration from the classic revolver cocktail a smoking gun swaps the bourbon for Scotch and the orange bitters for orange marmalade. Any good quality marmalade will do but if you ask nicely I might be able to get Mum’s recipe! The Islay single malt is what gives this drink the smoke without burning (too much)



 2 oz Blended Scotch Whiskey
 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 tsp Orange Marmalade
 1 tsp Smokey Single Malt Scotch (Laphroaig)
 1 Slice Orange Peel



Add the Blended Scotch, Mr Black and Marmalade to a shaker


Add ice to the shaker and shake


Strain into cocktail glass


Pour the Single malt over the back of a spoon into the drink to “float” it on the top.


Hold the orange peel near a lit match or lighter over the drink, give it a squeeze and the oils will ignite in a puff of sparks. Drop the peel in the glass
