The Smoke & Mirrors 

The Smoke & Mirrors combines scotch whisky, Boylan Heritage Ginger, lemon juice and honey to create an effervescent version of the classic Penicillin cocktail -- a smoky concoction perfectly suited to usher in the fall season. 

The Penicillin cocktail is traditionally made with a combination of scotch whisky, honey, ginger and lemon juice. We brighten up the classic recipe in The Smoke & Mirrors by using ginger beer in place of regular ginger. It's important to use a ginger beer that can stand up next to the pronounced smoke of scotch whisky.

Insert Boylan Heritage Ginger. Bold and balanced, Boylan Heritage Ginger pairs deep flavors of spicy ginger with refreshing citrus notes and a subtle sweetness, making for the perfect addition to this cocktail. Cheers!
