A touch of chocolate bitters complete the cocktail to give a round, rich finish, a powerful serve for the Scottish celebration. Ingredients

15ml Antica Formula
15ml Creme de Chataigne
3 drops of Chocolate bitters
Stir all ingredients in mixing glass and strain over ice rock into Johnnie Walker Blue Label old fashioned glass.
