Merry Christmas all...
1 oz The King’s Ginger
1 oz No. 3 Gin
.75 amontillado sherry
.5 oz Sencha-cinnamon syrup
.25 fresh lemon juice
3 dashes Angostura
4 oz hot water
Warm all and top with hot water. Garnish with a lemon wheel and a thin disc of fresh ginger
Use 25 grams of sencha green tea, and combine with 8 oz of hot (not quite boiling) water. Let steep for 1 minute, then strain. Take strained green tea and combine in small saucepan with 1 cup of cane sugar (substitute brown sugar for a darker, richer flavor). Heat over low heat until sugar is completely dissolved, remove from heat and add 75 grams cinnamon sticks (about 4-5 sticks 2” in length). Let sit for 30 minutes, 45 for a more intense cinnamon flavor, stirring occasionally. Pull out cinnamon sticks. Syrup is ready to use!
