Weekend Whiskey Cocktails – No.1 – The Tommy Gun
This lively, tangy tipple was created in San Francisco by veteran mixologist Jacques Bezuindenhout in 2008 and has since gone on to appear on many a neo-speakeasy menu due to its unique ingredients, bold flavors and distinctive moniker.
2 oz Irish whiskey, preferably Jameson
½ oz Grand Marnier
2 thin slices ginger
1 tsp apricot jam
¼ oz fresh lemon juice
1 lemon twist
Toss the ginger, jam and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Muddle until thoroughly mixed. Fill the shaker with ice, whiskey and Grand Marnier and shake until chilled throughout. Strain well into a rocks glass filled with ice and garnish with a lemon twist.
