Drink DuJour: Ploughman’s Elixir

One of the many delectable drinks on offer at The Heyward

If you haven’t made it out to Williamsburg’s The Heyward, now’s the time to go. The buzzing neighborhood joint offers delicious Southern-inspired dishes and creative drinks to pair with them. This season, try the fiery Ploughman’s Elixir, a strong scotch cocktail that seamlessly blends Byrrh with the exotic taste of Ancho Chili Liqueur and chocolate bitters.  

“It’s something you’d imagine drinking in an old gentlemen’s bar,” co-owner Christopher Brandon says. “A spiced up version of a very classic flavor.”


2 oz. Scotch
¾ oz. Ancho Reyes Chili Liquer
½ oz. Byrrh
2 Dashes chocolate bitters
1 Orange twist

Stir ingredients together and serve in a coupe glass.
