  • Equipment
  • Directions
3/4 oz Drambuie
2 oz Blended Scotch Whisky
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Ginger Syrup (Commercially Bottled Or Made Fresh*)
5 Fresh Basil Leaves
Boxcutters, Mixing-glass, Shaker Classic/Boston, Citrus Juicer, Strainer, Collins Glass, Cup.
Place all Ingredients, including the Basil Leaves, in a Cocktail Shaker with Ice. Shake and strain into an ice-filled Collins Glass. Garnish with a Basil Sprig.

*Ginger Syrup:
Combine one cup of water and one cup of granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Add some peeled and coarsely-chopped pieces of fresh ginger root (I used a chunk about the size of a small apricot). Simmer on low heat until the sugar dissolves and the flavors combine (about 5 minutes or so). Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid. Keeps in the refrigerator about 2 weeks.
