A Scotch Cocktail #2

The second cocktail from my discussion with Chip about Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban led me to a special spot in my heart: Cocktails with Sparkling Wine...
So, as an installment, here is the second:

Quinta Vino

1 1/2 Oz Quinta Ruban
1/4 Oz Luxardo Maraschino
1/4 Oz Bauchant Liqueur Napoleon
-sub Gran Gala, Grand Marnier, Royal Montaigne
1 1/2 – 2 Oz Sparkling Wine
*opt* Fee's Aromatic Bitters

Stir w/ cracked ice until chilled, Strain into Chilled Flute
Garnish w/ a twisted- thin cut- Orange Slice

This name is also straight from the mind of Chip, so i used google translate again and found out that Quinta also means villa, so there that is-- we got that going for us. This drink is wonderful, light, refreshing and still complex. Also, don't be afraid of using a less expensive Scotch (but feel free to go big!).
