Presbyterian Toddy

A honey-ginger syrup and a dash of orange bitters updates the more traditional bourbon toddy.

1 1/2 oz. bourbon
1/2-3/4 oz. honey-ginger syrup, depending on taste (see below)
2 dashes orange bitters
Hot water
Tools: barspoon
Glass: toddy
Garnish: clove-studded lemon wheel

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a preheated glass, top with hot water, stir and garnish.

Honey-ginger syrup: Combine 1 cup of honey, 1 cup of water and 2 Tbsp. of finely grated fresh ginger root in a saucepan and heat, while stirring, over medium heat for 7-10 minutes. Don’t let mixture reach a boil. Let cool to room temperature before using. Don’t strain, and be sure to shake before each use to redistribute the grated ginger bits.
