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.

1 oz Root Liquor
1 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
1 egg white
2 dashes Peychaud bitters

served up with a cherry garnish

NOTES: tried with Canton instead of Grand Marnier first, was not nearly as good. Would also be interested in substituting Cardamom for Peychaud. Real cherries (or luxardo cherries) would also most likely be better than maraschino. Egg whites emulsify better when shaken with alcohol and no ice first, then add ice and shake more.
