THE TARTAN Cocktail by Herb Westphalen

I've been asked to post the recipe for one of my own Signature Cocktails:


I created this a few years ago to showcase some of the trends in culinary and cocktail flavors.
You can use your favorite Scotch or ask for it that way:
- A GRANT Tartan (William Grant's)
- A RED Tartan (Johnny Walker Red)
-A PINCH Tartan (Pinch)... etc
I hope you get a chance to try one... or more.
Thanks and enjoy!

2 oz. Scotch (William Grant & Sons)
1 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1⁄2 oz. Canton Ginger Liqueur
1/4 teaspoon of Ginger Simple Syrup
Dash of Angostura Bitters
Candied Ginger as Garnish

Chill a martini glass
In a shaker, mix all liquid ingredients, add syrup, bitters and shake well
When chilled, strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with Crystallized Ginger
