I am truly delighted to see lavender used more often in cocktails and The Brogue by New York City Mixologist Leo Robitschek of Eleven Madison Park is a fantastic use of the herb with Scotch. The use of Drambuie with Highland Park makes this similar to a Rusty Nail and if you enjoy that favorite Scotch cocktail, you may find that adding lavender and lemon every now and then to be a nice switch from the norm. In this respect, I would consider this to be an enhanced Rusty Nail and it will be a delight to enjoy year round.
