Ingredients
  • 2 to 3 ounces bourbon, top shelf preferred
  • 1 ounce honey
  • 1/2 ounce ginger syrup, recipe follows
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Ginger Syrup:
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh ginger with peel, about 8 ounces
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
Directions
  • Warm the whiskey, honey, ginger syrup, and lemon juice in a small saucepan until honey dissolves and the drink is hot, but not boiling. Pour into a large snifter or mug. Serve.

Ginger Syrup:
  • Remove the outer peel of the lemon with a vegetable peeler, taking care not to include too much of the bitter white pith. Finely chop the lemon peel and ginger in a food processor.

  • Transfer the lemon-ginger mixture to a medium saucepan, add the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture and cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
