You’ve probably heard the name of this drink, but — like hot buttered rum and grog — never actually tasted one … or even know what’s in it. Well, time to demystify this whiskey (of course!) drink for you, a traditional cold-weather cure whether you’re chilly or feeling the sniffles coming on.
4 parts 2 Gingers Irish whiskey
2 parts agave nectar
1 part ginger liqueur
1 part lemon juice
Lemon, cloves, cinnamon stick
Making it: Combine liquid ingredients in a mug, stir in aromatic bitters, and top with near-to-boiling water (what you’d make coffee with). Garnish by floating a lemon wheel stabbed with dry cloves or a stick of cinnamon.
