About this Cocktail

A mishmash of flavors and a wee lil’ riff on a drink from Bramble Bar in Edinburgh, Scotland called the Cambeltown. I love Scotch, Chartreuse, and Cherry Heering, so this tipple ticks all the right boxes.

  • 2 oz Chai-Infused Monkey Shoulder Scotch
  • 1 oz Cherry Heering liqueur
  • 0.5 oz Green Chartreuse
  • 0.25 oz Eau de Thé Syrup
  • 4-6 Fresh Mint leaves

In a mixing glass, muddle the mint leaves and Eau de Thé syrup. Add all other ingredients, fill with ice and stir until well chilled. Double strain into a punch/Nick and Nora glass and garnish with a mint sprig.

*Chai Tea-Infused Scotch:
Put 2-3 tablespoons of loose-leaf Chai Tea into a quart canning jar, then fill with one full bottle (750ml) of any good Blended Scotch (I used Monkey Shoulder). After 1 hour, strain out tea into a glass bottle. Due to the alcohol content, the infusion will keep indefinitely at room temperature.

* Eau de Thé Syrup (from Dead Rabbit)
Add 2 cups water to 2 cups sugar into a saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 ounce of maiden hair fern leaves. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Let fern leaves steep for 20 minutes then strain syrup into a bottle. The syrup should keep for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.

    Did you manage to get hold of maiden hair fern in the uk? Can you point me in the right direction please?
  • Jon Sargent
    I found it quite easily here in the states in Oregon but I’ve no idea how readily available it is over in the UK. You could probably substitute another type of fern. Best of luck to you though!
  • David Gillies
    Thanks anyway. I made assumptions because you mentioned the Bramble which is one of my favourite bars in the capital. Your cocktail sounds fantastic.
