The last couple of days I have been fighting a nasty Spring cold that I can’t seem to be able to beat - time to bring out the Penicillin per @bcasp recommendation. I should have followed his instructions and used @distinguishedspirits tried and trusted method for the Honey Ginger Simple Syrup. Instead I came up with my own and it took me three batches before I had a Honey Ginger Simple Syrup with enough fire and bite. Don’t do what I do, follow @distinguishedspirits recipe for the Honey Ginger Simple Syrup Penicillin 2 oz Blended Scotch 0.75 oz Lemon Juice 0.75 oz Honey-Ginger Syrup 0.25 oz Float of Laphroaig 10 Year With a few of these inside I feel so much better - cheers
