““My own experience has been that the tools I need for my trade are paper, tobacco, food, and a little whisky.” – William Faulkner

-In San Francisco last week the Exploratorium held the Science of Cocktails and Whipper Snapper Whiskey was in the Whiskey Mix-off and we have a winner!!!

This cocktail, the Suffering Barrister, was created by Ken Walczak, spirits blogger for DrinkingMadeEasy.com.

Here’s the recipe:
The Suffering Barrister

1 1/2 oz. Whipper Snapper Whiskey
1 oz. gin
1/2 oz. + ginger-apple syrup (recipe below)
1/2 oz. (slightly less) lime juice
2 dashes angostura bitters

Combine ingredients in ice-filled shaker.  Shake; serve up.

Ginger-Apple Syrup
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.

A whiskey recipe to relish. Thank you Ken!

Try this at home, you’ll be glad you did.
