Recipe: Silver Fox

By Derek Brown

This is a full-bodied, high-octane, moonshine-based drink. Find a long-bearded, overall-clad hillbilly to enjoy it with.

    • 1 ½ ounces White Whiskey (Wasmund's rye spirit works great)
    • ½ ounce Dolin Blanc
    • ½ ounce apricot brandy
    • dash of orange bitters
    • Laphroiag 10-Year-Old Scotch Whiskey

Combine spirits with ice and stir until properly diluted (about one and a quarter ounces). Strain into chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with moonshine-soaked cherry.
