Comments

I liked this quite a bit, the bourbon and ginger are a natural combination. I found it a bit tart as written though, I might pull back on the lemon juice a bit next time.


Made with Evan Williams 2013 bourbon, King's Ginger, 2:1 gomme syrup, and Bitter Truth aromatic bitters. The tart and sweet are well balanced, but I wish the ginger would come through more. Next time I might swap the syrup for more ginger, or muddle a slice of ginger root.
