Don’t let smoky Scotch scare you away from this drink—we use just a dash of the peaty stuff in this warming cup of cider (sort of like you’d use absinthe in a rinse). The bulk of the booze is a not-so-peaty whisky, to keep the overall drink balanced. Drink it as a nightcap, paired with a classic dessert like our fresh apple pie.

This cocktail was featured as part of our Hot Boozy Drinks recipe gallery.
