Description

The Penicillin cocktail is a modern classic! Featuring Scotch with the flavors of honey, lemon and ginger, it’s got a unique, high-end vibe.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 thin slices of ginger, peeled and about 3/4 inch round
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) blended scotch
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoons) honey syrup
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) single malt scotch
  • Ice, for serving (use clear ice!)
  • Garnish: candied ginger or ginger root, lemon peel

Instructions

  1. In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, muddle (gently mash) the ginger with a muddler or wooden spoon until it is mashed and juices are released, about 15 seconds.
  2. To the cocktail shaker, add the blended scotch, lemon juice and honey syrup with a handful of ice. Shake until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into a lowball glass with one large ice cube.
  4. Carefully pour the single malt scotch over the back of a spoon just above the surface of the drink, creating a layer on top. Garnish with candied ginger, ginger root or lemon peel and serve.
