Smoky scotch is the unexpected base for this fruity and fizzy punch by PDT's Jeff Bell.


  • 1 1/2 ounces Johnnie Walker Double Black scotch whisky
  • 1/2 ounce grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce citrus oleo saccharum*
  • 3 ounces Victory Prima Pils pilsner, to top
  • Garnish: grapefruit half-wheel
  • Garnish: La Boíte Borneo N. 26 Spice Mix


These quantities are for a single serving but can be multiplied to fill a punch bowl, if desired.

  1. Add all the ingredients except the pilsner to a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a pilsner glass filled with fresh ice.

  3. Top with the pilsner.

  4. Garnish with a pinch of La Boîte Borneo N.26 Spice Mix and a grapefruit half-wheel.

*Citrus oleo saccharum: Using a microplane or similar tool, zest the entire surfaces of 3 grapefruits and 3 lemons into a bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar and let stand for 1 hour. Add 1 1/2 cups boiling water and stir until the sugar dissolves completely. Fine-strain and allow to cool. Store in the refrigerator.
