A Father's Day Cocktail

Cape Hatteras Cocktail

1 1/2oz Wild Turkey 81
1/2 oz Wild Turkey 101
3/4 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 btl tonic water

2 springs rosemary, 1 reserved
6 thin slices ginger root

This recipe did not come with specific instructions, but I've been doing this long enough to figure it out.

Muddle rosemary, ginger and syrup.  Add lemon juice and bourbon, shake, strain, top with tonic and garnish with a rosemary sprig.

I have been receiving quite a bit of correspondence lately from reps for different brands asking to feature cocktails on the blog.  These recipes usually include an offer to send samples, which is why I have been blogging all of these years.  Free hooch.  This round of cocktails are in honor of father's day.  Below is my variation on the Cape Hatteras.  This one's for you Dad.
