UR Mixology: Ginger Whiskey Refresher

July 15, 2014 |  by  |  UR Recipes

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!

Whiskey Ginger

Whiskey Ginger


  • 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.

  1. Thanks for sharing as I’m always looking for a new go-to-drink. I recommend also trying The Recoil or The Boom Headshot, both whiskey-based cocktails.
