Sick Day

February 23, 2018

Mixed by Shannon E Thomas


The sick hit our office, and two Artificers, including our intended Friday bartender, ended up sick at home. So Shannon came up with a last minute cocktail to fit the mood. Taking inspiration from the penicillin, the cocktail’s primary flavors were lemon, ginger, and honey – the perfect pick-me-up for anyone feeling under the weather.


  • 2 parts scotch
  • 1 part lemon ginger tea with lots of honey
  • 0.5 parts lemon juice
  • lemon twist for garnish


Brew the lemon ginger tea and mix in the honey – we did 1 part honey for 4 parts tea. Let the mixture cool.

Fill a shaker with ice cubes, pour in the scotch, the tea with honey, and the lemon juice. Shake, shake, shake it. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with the lemon twist.

Drink up and feel better!
