Laphroaig® Penicillin

2 parts Teacher's® Highland Cream Scotch Whisky3/4 part fresh Lemon Juice3/4 part Honey Syrup3 pieces fresh Ginger, Sliced1/4 part Laphroaig® 10 Year Old Whisky(optional for garnish) Candied Ginger

Using a wooden muddler or mixing spoon, muddle the fresh ginger in the bottom of a cocktail shaker until it is well mashed. Add the Teacher’s® scotch, lemon juice, and honey syrup, and fill shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled, about 20 seconds.

Strain into a rocks glass with one large ice cube (you may wish to double-strain through a fine tea strainer to remove the small flecks of ginger), and pour the Laphroaig® over the back of a bar spoon so that it floats atop the drink. Garnish with candied ginger (optional).

*For the honey syrup, bring equal parts of honey and water to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool before using, and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Tangy, sweet and smoky, a penicillin cocktail is the perfect addition to any night. The intense flavors of spicy ginger, zesty lemon, sweet honey and peaty and potent Laphroaig® Whisky are balanced out by a mellow scotch. Shake the ingredients together and top with Laphoraig® for a complex cocktail that is deeply satisfying.
