Shorthand for “Peat & Tonic,” this riff on the classic gin & tonic gets its smoky flavor from Laphroaig, a single-malt Scotch whisky famed for its peaty profile.

  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1½ ounces Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • ÂĽ ounce Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
  • 1 ounce Tomr’s Tonic syrup
  • Club soda, for topping

Squeeze juice from the lemon wedge into a chilled highball glass, dropping the spent wedge into the glass. Pour both whiskies and tonic syrup into the glass. Add cracked ice, then stir. Top with club soda and stir again, lightly.
