No, No, No… not the kind you take when you have a fungus growing on your foot! This is a Penicillin of the Cocktail variety! This is not an old classic cocktail, but a new one. I hope you will join me over the next few weeks in unraveling the history, spirit, and tastes of the Penicillin Cocktail.
What I hope to Cover
Like usual, I want to dig into the history of this drink. My understanding is that this is really a recent drink, but one that has spread through the nation like wildfire. We already covered the White Russian and the Moscow Mule, which are post WWII classics, but this is even more recent than that! I think this is the first recipe we are covering that has its origins in the 21st century.
This is also the first cocktail we are covering that uses scotch. I have had my fair share of whiskey, but this will be the first time I have spend any considerable time exploring scotch, which I am pretty excited about. I have been a fan of Glenlivet and found an appreciation for Loephrag somewhere along the way. It will be interesting and fun to dive a bit deeper and explore this spirit that I know has a rich, deep history.
