King's Calling

Basil, Rye whiskey, peychauds bitters, ginger beer
2 oz Rye
6 lf Basil
1 12 oz Ginger beer
3 ds Peychaud's Bitters
Muddle basil, add rest of ingredients and stir well, for at least 30 seconds to ensure basil essence is well incorporated. Pour over large ice cube.
I personally prefer this on rocks, however, I have made this as a martini but would recommend double straining if you were to do so. I have also used several Rye's (Old Overholdt is my favorite) with similarly pleasing results.

  • Not bad. I liked the spiciness - in fact after I made it, I added a few dashes of black pepper tincture to give it even more spice. — ☆☆☆
