Before there was Loungerati, I had a blog called the Barfly's Beat that chronicled cocktail recipes and bars I inhabited.
Well, New York Times Drinks columnist Jonathan Miles must have found it in his research on the Scotland Yard cocktail, a derivative of the classic old man drink, the Rusty Nail. A quote from my original review of the Rusty Nail in the Barfly's Beat is included in the May 17, 2009 Sunday Times article!
The Scotland Yard (Blended Scotch, Drambuie, lemon-grass syrup, lemon juice, basil leaves) sounds good to me and a visit to the West Village restaurant Entwine is in order to sample Duane Fernandez's creation.
