Presbyterian Toddy

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

1 1/2 oz. bourbon (Cagle uses Four Roses)
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 first three ingredients in a pre-heated glass, top with hot water, stir and garnish.

For the honey-ginger syrup:
1 cup honey
1 cup water
1 inch finely grated fresh ginger root, about 1 1/2-2 Tbsp.

In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients 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.
