Ginger is such a versatile flavor and pairs so well with a variety of spirits. This recipe is a twist on the classic whiskey-ginger (or ginger whiskey if you prefer) which notches up the heat by using our Spicy Ginger syrup. We combined it with Bull Run Distillery's Straight Bourbon Whiskey which has a soft opening with warm vanilla notes and a finish that’s all silk and honey. It's a wonderful match. Try the same recipe with different bourbons and whiskeys to find your perfect match.
