Tommy Gun

Inspiration:
Food & Wine
Our friend Lindsay made these for a recent party, and we made a batch at home this past weekend.

Ingredients:
  • 2 thin fresh ginger slices
  • 1 teaspoon apricot jam
  • 1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces Irish whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 1 lemon twist

Original Instructions:
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the ginger with the jam and lemon juice. Add ice and the whiskey and Grand Marnier; shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.

Lindsay's Method:
  1. Put all ingredients in a blender; blend, strain, and serve over ice.

Tim's Rating: 9.75
