Magpies Cocktail

Magpies like sparkly objects and this drink is the sparkliest of them all.
1 12 oz Bourbon
12 oz Yellow Chartreuse
2 ds Bitters, Bittermens 'Elemakule Tiki
14 oz Lime juice
1 spl Ginger beer
1 spg Basil
1 sli Ginger (We used a wedge of store bought candied ginger and speared it together with the basil leaf for the garnish.)
Combine bourbon, chartreuse, bitters and lime juice in a Collins glass. Fill with ice. Top with ginger beer. Stir. Wrap a wedge of candied ginger with a basil leaf and spear through for the garnish.
Inspired by Lynne Barrett's most recent short story collection, Magpies, this drink was chosen by Lynne herself on Cabinet Beer Baseball Club's inaugural episode, Drinking With Writers.
