Penicillin

I’ve been unable to shake a foul cold, so naturally I’ve turned to the drinks cabinet for help.

  • 2 1/2 oz Scotch
  • 1/2 oz Ginger liqueur
  • 3/4 oz Lime juice
  • 3/4 oz Honey syrup

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled tumbler.

I used 1 shot of a single malt and the rest Johnnie Walker Double Black for the Scotch. I love it neat and I thought the smokiness would go well with the honey and lemon. It was really lovely and comforting, just what I was looking for. When winter comes round again I can see myself returning to this.

For the honey syrup I just mixed equal parts honey and boiling water and waited for it to cool.
