1 Royal Gingersnap

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare a rock glass by frosting the rim with a mixture of powdered cinnamon and sugar.
  2. Muddle the fruits together with the marmalade and the syrup in the bottom of a mixing glass, then add Canadian rye whiskey and ice.
  3. Shake well and strain the drink into the prepared rock glass over ice.
  4. Garnish with a flamed orange zest if desired.
  5. If you want to make your own ginger syrup, place one cup sugar, 1 three-inch piece ginger and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook about 1 hour, until ginger flavor is quite strong. Let cool; strain before using. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to a week. This makes one cup. (For a more intense flavor, make this syrup a day before using, allowing the ginger to sit in the syrup, refrigerated, overnight.).
