try this recipe if ur a bourbon lover like me! i developed it while i was day bartender at stand in manhattan. i use 2oz bourbon because i like it strong, adjust to taste. real impression maker and crowd pleaser!
2 oz Bourbon, i use Makers Mark 2 oz fresh ginger base(see recipe below) squeeze of lemon, drop in dash of simple syrup top with soda water drop marashino cherry as garnish/finisher
-combine all ingredients BESIDES soda water and cherry, toss 3xs, pour over ice, top with soda water and cherry.
ginger base- youll have to play with this one 1. take 5 peices of fresh ginger -peel -dice -add lemon juice and simple syrup, to taste. you can add more later so be modest at first -blend at highest speed until as thin as possible -let rest over a mesh strainer until ALL juice is out, can use a tool to press quicker
