1½ozblended Scotchone that’s more sweet than smoky, and not too expensive, such as Famous Grouse
½ozIslay single malt Scotchthe good stuff: think Caol Ila, Laphroaig, or Ardbeg—Lagavulin might be a bit too smoky
1ozfreshly squeezed lemon juice
1ozhoney syrupsee note
3thin slices fresh ginger
Place the slices fresh ginger in a shaker and use a wooden muddler or wooden spoon to muddle it until it is bruised and broken up. Add the blended Scotch, Islay single malt Scotch, lemon juice, and honey syrup, and add lots of ice cubes. Shake until the cocktail is icy cold, about 20 seconds.
Strain in a glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with an additional slice of ginger, and enjoy right away.
To make honey syrup, mix equal parts honey and water, and heat until the two are combined. Store in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
