Honey & Ginger Highball
- 50ml Glenburgie 15YO Single Malt
- 100ml Soda Water
- Rosemary - use flowering sprigs if in season
- 100ml ginger bitters
- 200ml acacia honey
- 100ml Absolut vodka
- 600ml water
HOW TO MAKE IT
For all of our ice, we use the dICE Cube Maker, which is widely available online. This will make 8 large, clear cubes.
- Place the rosemary facing upwards in the ice moulds before filling with water and freezing overnight.
- The next step is to infuse them in the flavoured liquid. Add 100ml ginger bitters, 200ml honey and 100ml Absolut vodka to 600ml water. We used local acacia honey, and we recommend everyone to use their own locally sourced version. Dissolve the honey before freezing, simply by stirring, no heat will be required.
- Cubes can be placed in the liquid, or the liquid poured over the cubes, as long as they are submerged. This should then be placed back in the freezer for another 24 hours.
- Place two ungarnished cubes, followed by a single garnished cube, in a highball glass. Add 50ml of Glenburgie 15 Year Old Single Malt and top up with 100ml Soda.
- Take your time to sip and savour. As the ice melts, it will accentuate the wonderful flavours of the whisky.
