1.5 oz Scotch
1 oz Ginger Syrup
0.5 oz Honey Syrup
0.5 oz Pimm’s
0.5 oz St. Germain
0.5 lemon juice
2 healthy dashes Whiskey Barrel Bitters

Shake ingredients well with ice and pour over a large ice cube. Dash with seltzer (we’re talking like a tablespoon here, don’t drown the thing) and garnish with candied ginger.

NOTES: Kind of took a shot in the dark with some of these ingredients and it really ended well. This one turned out to be damn tasty, if ever-so-slightly too sweet. Making again I might up the scotch to 2 oz and/or cut out the honey syrup totally. The Pimm’s gave it a nice, surprising aftertaste. I’ll be making this one again.

1.5 oz Scotch
0.5 oz Benedictine
0.5 oz Lime Juice
0.5 oz Creme de Cassis
2 drops Absinthe
2 dashes Whiskey Barrel Bitters
2 drops Rosewater

Shake ingredients well with ice. Pour into a rocks glass over crushed ice, splash with seltzer water, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Nicely floral, a little sweet, and absolutely no whiskey burn, though some of the nice peat flavor remains. Possibly the most successful drink we came up with.
