45 ml whisky
1 tsp ginger syrup
Club soda/sparkling water
1 tsp lemon juice
A sprinkling of rock salt
1 green chilli, split (optional)
200 gm of fresh ginger washed and peeled
4 cups of water
300 gm of sugar
A pinch of salt
To make the ginger syrup first, chop the ginger into tiny pieces. Boil the sugar and ginger in water, and then out it on simmer for about 45 minutes. Strain, and cool. Refrigerate in a glass bottle if you’re using it the following day.
To make the cocktail, add the whisky, lemon juice, ginger syrup and ice, and shake well.
Strain the drink into a Collins glass, top it up with soda, and serve with a swizzle stick. You could sprinkle some of the rock salt on the drink, or rim the glass with it.
For additional garnish, add the green chilli in the drink.
