There’s nothing that signals the beginning of autumn quite like the smell of a bonfire. Intensely nostalgic, it conjures images of crunching through piles of leaves, sparklers and toasted marshmallows. It’s the latter that has inspired this cocktail from the brilliant team at whisky bar Black Rock. There’s only a smidge of peaty Lagavulin in this, so it’s not too challenging if smoky whisky isn’t normally your thing. blackrock.bar
