I love scotch.  Scotchy Scotch Scotch.

There is not much of a recipe for scotch but there are generally no instructions on the bottle.  Just in case you are tempted to try pouring it in your ear or something here is how to dispense scotch.

  2. Put 1 icecube in said glass.  While you don’t have to use a Han Solo carbonite ice cube it’s more fun if you do.  If you have whisky stones you probably don’t need to read this.
  3. Pour scotch in glass.
  4. Enjoy!
