$9, Coda Bar & Kitchen
329 Columbus Ave., Boston
In the mix
2 ounces Dewar's scotch
1 ounce honey-ginger simple syrup
Splash of lime juice
Give ingredients a quick shake and pour into a highball glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge.
"This is a gateway cocktail into bourbons, whiskeys, and scotches," owner Michael Moxley said. "The honey and ginger take the edge off the scotch."
Bottom line: Dark & Stormy fans will love this gingery sipper. Coda uses AJ Stephans ginger beer from Fall River — it's sharp and snappy and will certainly cure what ails you.
