Albero Highball

Starring Amontillado

The Albero Highball is quintessentially an Amontillado lengthener that emphasizes quality and minerality.

Speyside Scotch (Macallan 15)
1.5 oz

Directions

Carefully pour Amontillado and Scotch into the Collins glass. Use tongs to place 6 kold-draft cubes in Collins glass, as little splash as possible. Use a barspoon to hold the ice to one side as you pour the Sancerre, and then the sparkling mineral water into the beverage, avoiding the sides of the glass.  Then, use a barspoon to place 3 heaping barspoons of maraschino/citrus creme on top of the cocktail. Serve on a light-colored linen coaster.
