I was recently introduced to 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey and instantly fell in love with it's smooth, complex flavor. I knew I had to create a cocktail using it, so I decided to bring the ginger theme one step further and make remixed version of the traditional simple syrup. Here I served it in a half-pint canning jar.
2 oz fresh ginger, coarsly-grated
2 c. brown sugar
2 c. water
Bring to simmer, turn off heat and let sit for one hour - then strain to remove ginger bits. Chill in refrigerator.
Fill a glass with ice and pour the ginger syrup in first, almost half full then top off with 2 Gingers Whiskey - stir and enjoy!
