Fly Swatter

A Bourbon-Ginger sour
1 12 oz Bourbon, Old Weller Antique 107
34 oz Lemon juice
34 oz Ruby Port, Sandeman
12 oz Allspice Dram
12 oz Ginger liqueur, Domaine de Canton
1   Ginger (Nickel-sized slice, as garnish)
1   Blackberry (As garnish)
Instructions
Shake with ice; strain into chilled coupé. Garnish.
Notes
Assemble garnishes on a cocktail pick. I used house-made dram, but the commercial stuff, e.g., St. Elizabeth's, is just fine.
From other users
  • I had some leftover ginger from making anise-scented short ribs & built this recipe around it. Originally an aromatic cocktail, it needed some acid to balance the sweetness — hence the lemon juice. — ☆☆☆
