- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 6 mint leaves
- 2 ounces Bowmore 12-year-old single-malt scotch
- 1/2 ounce Campari
- Garnish: flaming lime shell*
Add lime juice, syrup and mint leaves to a Collins glass and press gently with a muddler.
Add scotch and fill with crushed ice.
Float Campari on top and fill with more crushed ice.
