Here’s a sexy and sophisticated drink for those who like to sip on something they can feel in their bones. Yes, this is a stiff one but you won’t regret it!
1 oz whiskey of choice
2 tablespoons ginger syrup (or to taste, recipe below)
Cold sparkling water, to taste
Lime wedge (optional)
Shake whiskey and ginger syrup in a cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes and strain into a glass. Top with cold sparkling water to taste. The volume depends on how strong you like your drink. I add about 6 oz. of sparkling water. Garnish with a squeeze of lime, if desired.
Homemade Ginger Syrup
1 cup raw cane sugar
3 oz ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
Juice of one lemon
3 1-inch peels of lemon
2 1⁄2 cups water
Combine all ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. Let simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Strain out solids. Let cool and store for up to one week in the fridge.
