RECIPE AND TEXT PROVIDED BY OLD DOMINICK DISTILLERY in Memphis, TN.

Originally a Scotch cocktail, the Penicillin has a light medicinal flavor. Converting the Penicillin into a Hot Toddy and subbing bourbon back in makes it more familiar, but the splash of scotch that remains and the addition of ginger has completely changed the way we look at our Hot Toddys.  

Wintry Bourbon Cocktail Recipe

• 2 oz. Huling Station Bourbon

Combine the ginger, honey, and lemon juice in a mug, muddle the mixture. Pour the boiling hot water into the mug, allow to rest for 5 minutes. Stir in the Huling Station and Scotch. Remove the ginger, if you’d like.
