Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Penicillin

/ Uncategorized

My husband and I have been watching a web series on Amazon Prime called Worth It.  It’s a 15-minute food show where two guys go to three different restaurants and try a specific thing (ice cream for example). The three restaurants chosen have difference price points, so there’s a cheap option, a medium, and an expensive ($900 coffee anyone?).  It’s fun to see the different places they go and I get a lot of ideas.  One of the episodes was cocktail-themed. The expense place they went sold a $200 cocktail made with scotch called a Penicillin. When they described it, I knew I had to try it at home (though not with the 30-year Highland Park they used, obviously!).

Let’s get to it!

Mix lemon juice and honey together in a small bowl or pitcher.  I like to just do this in the liquid measuring pitcher I used to measure out the lemon juice, less dishes to do later.

Mix them until the honey has dissolved.

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Now put in the grated ginger and pour the scotch and the honey and lemon mixture over that.

Pop on the lid and give it a good shake.

Pour the cocktail through a strainer in two glasses filled with ice.

I like to use this big ice sphere but regular ice will work too. A large ice cube (or sphere) melts less quickly and looks extra fancy. 😉 

Garnish with lemon peel.

This drink is tart with just a hint of sweetness.  The ginger adds a tiny kick that somehow enhances the flavors of the scotch.  It also smooths out the peaty-ness without covering it. This is a sophisticated cocktail that makes me feel like a grown-up.
