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.

2 oz Brandy
0.5 oz Ginger syrup (here)
0.5 oz Grand Marnier
3 dashes of orange bitters
Garnish with candied ginger

Shake ingredients well and serve up with garnish.

NOTES: Tried it first without Grand Marnier, but was too bitter. Current iteration slightly too sweet. Either use less Grand Marnier next time, or try triple sec instead. Ginger could also be stronger, so maybe more syrup. Possibly substitute Domaine de Canton for Grand Marnier and skip measurement adjustments. Overall, not bad. Pretty well balanced, not much bite.
