Swizzle Me This, Batman featuring Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
In a highball glass add pineapple syrup and lime juice. Add crushed ice 3/4 up glass. Add Johnnie Walker Gold Label, Drambuie, club soda, smoked saline and 3 or 4 dashes Hella Bitters. Stir the cocktail well, preferably with a swizzle stick. Garnish with a long pineapple leaf, pointy side up.
*HOW TO MAKE PINEAPPLE SYRUP
1. Using pure pineapple juice (nothing from concentrate), measure out a quantity of sugar equal to half of the pineapple juice you’re going to use.
2. In a heavy-bottom sauce pan, bring pineapple juice to a simmer.
3. Using a wooden spoon, skim the surface of the foam that rises and remove. 4. When reduced by half, stir in sugar until dissolved and turn off heat.
**HOW TO MAKE SMOKED SALINE
1. Combine 2 oz of smoked salt in a bowl with hot water until the salt is completely dissolved. The proportions should be 4:1 water to salt.
