  • Pour in bourbon and ginger liqueur and fill the shaker with ice. Close and shake until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass with a large whiskey ice cube.

  • Lightly slap 2 sprigs of mint between your hands to release their scent, then garnish the drink with them.

Cook's Note:

You can use regular ice cubes if you don't have the special tray. Use a wooden spoon if you don't have a muddler.
