The Complimentary at Scotch & Soda
Let a load off at Scotch and Soda with The Complimentary, their beautifully crafted cocktail with a smoky aroma.
By Claire Porter
The Ides of March are nigh, there’s a chill in the air, and winter’s icy layer has just begun to melt away. It’s the perfect time to indulge your dark side with a cocktail imbued with warm smokiness. Enter the Complimentary at Scotch & Soda (310 South Ave., Springfield). This pretty little number is certainly not for everyone—its bitter taste and smoky aroma assert themselves on the palate. Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey and Campari form the base, and Carpano Antica Formula swirls in a subtle vanilla-scented spiciness. But this drink’s crowning moment comes from a spritz of atomized tobacco-infused Jefferson’s Bourbon, presenting a smokiness just heavy enough to make you sink to the level of your inner Brutus.
