Juli Hale from Des Moines, Iowa, shared this great TR cocktail recipe with us:
Ginger Simple Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup chopped fresh ginger
In a small saucepan combine water, sugar, and ginger. Bring to boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Let cool to room temperature. Strain and discard ginger.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Add the juice of half a lime
3/4 oz. ginger simple syrup
2 oz. Templeton rye
Cover and shake well; strain into a cocktail glass
This is the first cocktail I have ever created. As a recovering Mormon, I’m awfully proud of myself.
