An acceptable way to drink scotch for breakfast, this drink is an easy drinker perfect as an alternative brunch cocktail and will go down well with even scotch skeptics. I tried to create a cocktail with the main components of any decent breakfast, coffee, orange, maple syrup and egg, spiked with scotch to give it a malty backbone, and touched with some Pedro Ximenez Sherry to give a hint of dark fruits and berries.
