1 cup sugar
Heat whiskey, honey, ginger syrup, and lemon juice in a small saucepan until honey dissolves and liquid is hot, but not boiling. Pour into a large snifter or mug. Serve.
1. Cut peel from lemon (avoid pith) using a vegetable peeler. Place ginger and lemon peel in food processor and finely chop.
