BOURBON GINGER FIXER
Today, on this rainy day in the Manette Neighborhood of Bremerton, Washington, our neighbors at Elixir Fixer had their Grand Opening party for their beautiful shop! In honor of their special day, we decided to make a signature cocktail using one of their syrups, “Ginger Ginger” and we think you’re going to love it. We also picked up a bottle of their “Nola Cola” and “Fast Thymes.” If you are in the area, be sure to stop in and check them out to sample and pick up some of your favorite Elixir Fixers – if not, don’t worry they’re online HERE.
The “Ginger Ginger” really brings out the spice in the bourbon, while the fresh juices of the pomegranate and lime add some tartness, garnished with our homemade candied ginger to add a sweet and spicy finish.
2 oz. Bourbon (we used Tucker Distillery‘s Cinder Bourbon)
1 oz. Elixir Fixer’s “Ginger Ginger”
2 oz. fresh pomegranate juice
1 oz. of fresh lime juice
1 egg white
4 dashes of Angostura Bitters
In a shaker, add the bourbon, “Ginger Ginger” syrup, pomegranate and lime juice, and fill with ice. Then add one egg white and shaker vigorously until it is extra foamy. Strain into a Champagne Coupe (or any similar glass style) and add the 4 dashes of bitters to the foam. With a toothpick, drag out the bitters in a spiral and garnish the rim with a piece of candied ginger (candied ginger recipe HERE)
