Fresh thyme and peppery ginger add a boost of flavor to this spiked, summery lemonade.

1 1/2 oz. Irish whiskey (Beard uses Michael Collins)
3 oz. ginger-thyme lemonade (see below)
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: Collins
Garnish: lemon wheel and fresh thyme sprig

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.

Ginger-thyme Lemonade
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 oz. fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
1/2 oz. fresh thyme leaves
2 cups fresh lemon juice

In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar, ginger and thyme over medium-high heat. Stir until sugar dissolves and remove from heat. Once cool, strain into a clean glass pitcher and add lemon juice. Stir to combine, and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
