PENICILLIN 

2 oz blended scotch
.75 oz honey-ginger syrup*
.75 oz fresh lemon
.25 oz Islay single malt scotch
Candied Ginger

DIRECTIONS: Add all ingredients except single malt to a shaker. Shake with ice until well-chilled. Strain over large rock in a rocks glass. Top with single malt and garnish with candied ginger.

*Honey-Ginger Syrup:

Combine 1 cup of honey with one 6-inch peeled and sliced piece of ginger root with 1 cup of water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Refrigerate overnight, then strain, discarding the solids.

 

BEETARITA

2 oz Mezcal
.75 oz Lime
.5 oz Beet Juice
.75 oz Agave
Lime Wheel

DIRECTIONS: Shake all ingredients with ice until well-chilled, strain over fresh ice into a tiki mug or large rocks glass. Grate fresh nutmeg on top (this part is crucial – always use whole nutmeg seeds and freshly grate with a microplane).

 

SAZERAC

2 oz Maryland-Style Rye
3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 sugar cube
1 splash absinthe
1 drop water
Lemon Peel

DIRECTIONS: Grab two heavy-bottomed rocks glasses. Add absinthe and cracked ice to one rocks glass and set aside. In the other, drop in your sugar cube and a drop of water — just enough to moisten the cube. Crush the cube with a muddler or barspoon. Add Peychaud’s, Angostura, rye, ice, and stir. Empty the first glass of ice and allow residual absinthe & ice melt to drip out for a second. Strain into this glass the whiskey mixture, express lemon peel over the top and discard, or drop into the glass.
