2 oz Irish whiskey, Mitchell & Son Green Spot
1⁄4 oz Bitter Truth EXR
1⁄4 oz Lime juice
1 t Ginger-Honey Syrup
1 twst Lime peel (garnish)
2 ? Candied ginger (garnish)

Shake, double-strain, straight up, chilled coupe, garnish


I dug the deeper flavor that Mitchell & Son has over other Irish whiskeys, so I wanted to build something that would let the whiskey be central. Although the build for this is simple, the EXR provides a nice herbal and vegetal base for the honey, ginger, and barrel notes to shine
