Spellbound Cocktail Inspired by The Elixir of Love

In a blend of comedy, romance, and brio, a mechanic with limited brainpower finds himself smitten with Adina, a schoolteacher. He longs for her affection, but is plagued with self-doubt. Enter Dr. Dulcamara, a dubious character who peddles the “magic elixir” which promises to solve all of his problems. Will this The Elixir of Love inspired cocktail provoke similar results? 

When To Use a Coupe Glass

The Spellbound Cocktail’s final destination, a coupe glass, is a perfect choice to savor the recipe to its fullest capability. Firstly, the coupe’s elegant, shallow bowl allows the fragrant aromas of the Pigs Nose Blended Scotch and the citrusy orange zest garnish to be fully appreciated. Since the drink is meant to be savored for its complex flavors, the wide mouth of the coupe glass facilitates a more leisurely sipping experience, allowing you to taste all the flavors at one time. Additionally, the coupe glass’ smaller size prevents the drink from appearing visually unbalanced and keeps it chilled for a longer period.
