The ultimate bourbon cocktail for events
Start with rinsing your serving glass (old fashion, double rock, whatever you got for the event) with Pernod (an anise flavored sprit) note: to save time you can pour some pernod in a small spray bottle and mist the glass prior to serving)
Pour all ingredients (except Pernod) in a mixing beaker or pint glass
Add ice and stir for 10 to 15 seconds
Strain into a double old fashioned glass
Garnish with a caramelized ginger candy
Using a blowtorch, caramelized pre skewered crystallized ginger candy and use the ginger for garnish. If you’re using a wooden skewer, make sure you have almost completely covered the skewer so you don’t burn the wood part and risk the embarrassment of charcoaled bamboo pieces floating in your drink.
