Spin Move

One of Yael Vengroff’s signature Bar Shift hits, this warmly spiced coupe is made with Dewar’s White Label scotch, D’ussé cognac, St-Germain, green cardamom pods, fresh lemon juice and Angostura bitters. The addition of aromatic cardamom was inspired by Vengroff’s time spent in Mumbai, India, and a playful green-apple fan provides the finishing touch.

  • 3/4 oz Dewar’s White Label scotch
  • 3/4 oz D’ussé cognac
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz Simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz St-Germain
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


  1. Smash the green cardamom pods and add them into a shaker.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and ice and shake.

  3. Double-strain into a coupe.
