The Modern No. 2 is a cocktail that is as strikingly different today as it was when it was first created. Any mid shelf scotch will do for this drink, however you should choose a brand whose smokiness is noticeable at first taste.  The Sloe Gin and Grenadine are meant to counterbalance the Scotch and give you a rich, flavorful experience, while it’s thick bold appearance will surely be noticed by those around you.


1 Dash Orange Bitters
