I wanted to create a stirred cocktail that married the flavors that really speak to me in a cocktail. I love the spice punch from ginger when paired with the sweetness of rum or bourbon. Mr. Black Ethiopian small batch adds to the spice notes I wanted to pull out with the ginger syrup.
This is my tropical speakeasy cocktail for the Mr. Black 2021 competition.
