If you know me, there's pretty much no chance I've never made you drink one of these. There are a lot of reasons that I love my Sidekick, but inventing this is probably one of the top ten. I know you guys probably read this on Honest Cooking already, but today's weather made it feel especially pertinent. Drink up!
juice of one lime
two slices of ginger
1 barspoon simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 oz. bourbon
seltzer to fill
Muddle lime, ginger, bitters and simple syrup. Strain into glass of ice. Add 2 ounces of bourbon. Fill with seltzer and stir. Enjoy in the sunshine.
This is also a great cocktail to make ahead in batches. Simply muddle all your ingredients, strain and add the bourbon as a base. Then, when ready to drink, add seltzer to taste and dole out by the pitcherful.
