Smoke and Mirrors presented by Cocktail Detour


Combining “regular” scotch with a really smoky one combines the best of both scotch worlds. You get the smoothness and roundness plus a hint of that burnt smokiness that we appreciate so much.⁠

The fresh mint brightens up everything here, adding a vegetal touch that’s both refreshing and even a bit up-lifting.⁠
