The Eight Night Stand Recipe

This cocktail, like many tiki-style cocktails, is complex in its ingredients, but results in a wonderfully layered and delicious drink.
The Eight Night Stand Recipe


1/3 ounce ginger juice, freshly squeezed
1 ounce pineapple juice, freshly squeezed
1/2 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezeda
1.5 ounce 90-proof or above American whiskey
1/4 ounce Royal Combier (Chartreuse and Cognac are also good substitutes here)
3/4 oz Benedictine
dash Angostura bitters
touch of Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub (a slice of jalapeño can also be shaken into the drink if you don't have this on hand)
touch of absinthe
float of smoky blended or single-malt scotch
lemon twist (for garnish)


Bartender tip: If you don't have a juice extractor, feel free to omit the pineapple juice, and to use a grater to incorporate fresh ginger.

1. Shake and strain over ice in a rocks glass.
