Ice cubes 
Ice sphere (if available)
2 ounces single malt Scotch whisky
3/4 ounce Strega
3/4 ounce honey simple syrup

Fill a rocks or double Old Fashioned glass with ice cubes or a large ice sphere.

Combine the whisky, Strega, honey simple simple syrup, lemon juice and salt in a cocktail shaker and fill with additional ice. Shake vigorously until chilled.

Double-strain the cocktail by holding a small, conical fine mesh strainer between the shaker tin with a Hawthorne strainer (or a cobbler shaker with its built-in strainer) and the cocktail glass. Pour the cocktail through both strainers into the prepared glass. Serve immediately.
