Scotch BBQ

Scotch BBQ
Serves 1

Sometimes you need to try something new for an occasional cocktail. The successful life is all about making good choices, a topic that is common in my podcast, Make Your Someday Today.

2 ounce blended Scotch (do not use a high-end single malt for this)
1/2 ounce real maple syrup
1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

  1. Add to mixing cup with ice. Shake until cold. Serve in a rocks glass over fresh ice. 
  2. Optional: add 1-2 drops Sriracha or Tabasco sauce.
A strong cocktail, but different than most. Despite the maple syrup, it is not sweet, nor is it tart from the vinegar. They balance, with the syrup lending a soft, almost velvet texture. The liquid smoke adds a little bite. It is quite like drinking the aroma of a good BBQ.

Make Your Someday Today is a twice-weekly podcast, where we talk to successful people in all walks of life and around the world on Monday, and then on Thursday, I take a specific message from the previous guest and give my “Trevitorial”, where I help you apply that message to your life. The entire purpose of the show is to help all of us overcome our challenges and fears and become the person we want to be, the person we deserve to be.
