This past autumn, Great King Street Blended Scotch Whisky presented King on King Street in Charleston, SC, a two night celebration for Movember! It included honoring the pleasures of blended scotch at some of upper King Street’s best watering holes (brown water that is).

Barman Roger Gelis of Proof named his event cocktail after an Ernest Hemingway quote about fall, and although we are deep in the depths of winter, we remembered how good it was and wanted to share it now. Why? Because it reminds us of crisp apples and hayrides and campfires, not dreary days of wintry mix, reports of Northern snowdrifts, and overworn scarves.

Let’s remember the good times, a la Misters Hemingway and Gelis.

Best of All
from Roger Gelis of Proof, Charleston, SC
