Cheeky Cocktails — Honey Ginger Syrup
Honey Ginger Syrup made from real ginger juice and honey is becoming more common behind professional bars due to the increasing popularity of the Penicillin cocktail (a contemporary classic made with Blended Scotch, Honey Ginger Syrup, and Lemon Juice), and truly, a Penicillin without ginger juice in the syrup pales in comparison.
Pair Cheeky's Honey Ginger Syrup as above in a ratio of 2 parts Scotch, .75 parts Honey Ginger Syrup, .75 parts Lemon Juice, or sub in any other aged spirit of your choice (Bourbon and Dark Rum are excellent choices as well.) You can also use this syrup instead of a sugar cube or simple syrup in an Old Fashioned, or incorporated to add a little spice in a Hot Toddy.
Their Honey Ginger Syrup is shelf stable when unopened, but we’d recommend using within a year of purchase for best flavor. Cheeky Honey Ginger Syrup will last for about two weeks after opening if kept refrigerated. Always refrigerate after opening.
