Servings
6
cocktails (and 1 cup honey syrup)
Ingredients
  • Honey syrup
  • ½ cup honey
  • Cocktail
  • ½ ounce whole black peppercorns
  • ½ ounce whole cloves
  • 9 ounces whiskey
  • One 1-inch-long piece of fresh ginger, scraped and sliced crosswise into 4 coins
  • 2 ounces honey syrup
  • Ice
Directions
  1. Make the honey syrup: In a small saucepan set over medium heat, bring the honey and ½ cup water to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the honey is completely dissolved. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool. Pour into an airtight container and refrigerate.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, use a muddler to coarsely smash the peppercorns and cloves. Transfer the spices to a 6-inch square of cheesecloth set flat on a work surface. Gather the corners and tie with a piece of kitchen twine.
  3. In a 36-ounce iSi siphon, add the spice sachet, whiskey, 15 ounces water, ginger coins and honey syrup. Top with ice, cover and shake well to chill. Charge the contents with a CO2 canister, then strain into 6 ice-filled Collins glasses.
