Gunslinger

Adapted from a recipe by Eric Ho, Melt Bar and Grilled, Lakewood, OH.Gunslinger

“A favorite among staff at Melt. It is a take on a Moscow Mule using our favorite spirit, bourbon, as well as fresh juice straight from the ginger root for an even spicier kick. So would you like some ‘Bulleit’ in your Gunslinger?” Eric Ho.

4 lemon wedges

1 teaspoon cane sugar

60 ml (2 oz) Bulleit bourbon

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh-pressed ginger juice

Ginger ale

Muddle 3 lemon wedges and the sugar in an old-fashioned glass. Add the bourbon and ginger juice. Stir to incorporate sugar. Fill glass with ice, top with ginger ale and toss to mix. Add the remaining lemon wedge as garnish.

gaz sez: Nice, simple, and incredibly well-balanced. I like this one without the ginger ale, too. Well done, Eric.
