Jim German on His Small Town Cocktail Bar, Jimgermanbar, in Washington State. I LOVE this bar, and these two are the bees knees.
Horse's Neck Cocktail. 2 ounces bourbon ginger ale 2 dashes Angostura Bitters Peel an entire lemon in one spiral strand and hang the peel over the rim of a high ball glass. Pour in the bourbon. Fill the rest of the glass with ginger ale and add the bitters. I also like to use this recipe plus Pimms for a nice summer Pimms jug.
The Black Mission Fig Bitters pairs beautifully with scotch it’s no surprise that we’re seeing it used in scotch cocktails, from Highland’s “Blackbird” to this hot ticket from Saveur called “The Scottish Dream”. It’s inspired by Speed Rack gang leader Lynnete Marrero‘s creation “The Flannen Isle Lua”; see her original recipe below.
