3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
3⁄4 oz Ginger syrup
1 ds Absinthe (optional)

Shake, strain, up.


For a spicy, truly spectacular ginger syrup, juice ginger, run juice through a tea strainer, add sugar to taste, and add only enough water to give the syrup a workable consistency. To preserve, add cayenne extract to taste (gingerol decays rapidly, this restores the bite), and refrigerate.


Named for the Duke, not the Stew.
