1 1/2 oz. Whipper Snapper Whiskey
1 oz. No. 209 Gin
slightly more than 1/2 oz. ginger-apple syrup (recipe below)
slightly less than 1/2 oz. lime juice
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine ingredients in ice-filled shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.
Combine 3-4 oz. of ginger, sliced thin, 1 tsp. black peppercorns, the skins and cores of two apples, 2 cups sugar, and 3 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; simmer for about 40 minutes or until syrup has the desired flavor and consistency. Cool completely. Strain.
