How To Make The Dead Bastard
Add all ingredients except ginger beer to a cocktail shaker and shake for 15 seconds. Slowly stir ginger beer into your cocktail shaker to integrate. Then dump entire contents of your cocktail shaker into a double old fashioned glass. Garnish with mint sprig and orange slice.
Mint & Orange Slice
Light/muted combination of bourbon and spicy ginger that remains light and refreshing. Not as bourbon-flavored as the dying bastard recipe.
