Atholl brose

Yield: 1 quart

Measure Ingredient
3 tablespoons Rolled oats
2 tablespoons Heather honey
Or other flavor honey
1 quart Scotch whiskey

Place the oatmeal in a mixing bowl and add just enough cold water to make a thin paste. Let stand for about 1 hour, then strain through a fine sieve into a large clean bowl, pressing the oatmeal against the sieve with the back of a spoon to release as much liquid as possible.

Discard the oatmeal.

Mix the oatmeal liquid with the honey, then add the Scotch. Rebottle the liquid and shake well before serving either straight up or with a mixer.

Note: Atholl Brose is traditionally served in Scotland on New Year's eve to the first guests crossing the threshold of the host's home, hence its other name, First Footing.
