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!
