It's getting cold, soon be snowy. There's a chill in the air, and we all need something that will warm us heart and soul. Here are my two favorites... Detractors may say they were their grandfathers' favorites. To them, I say these are timeless.
So very easy to drink. Very easy.
3 parts scotch
1 part sweet vermouth
garnish with a cherry
Please don't bother with a jigger or a shaker. Just pour it in a glass with some ice and swirl it around. Excellent with good, inexpensive blended scotch like Grant's or White Horse. (Primary malts for Grant's include Glenfiddich and Balvenie, White Horse a bit peatier w/ the young Lagavulin and Caol Ila. Dewar's or Johnnie Walker Red have nice ads, tho, but I wouldn't drink them.)
Your sons will thank me.
