Preparation

  3. Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
  5. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the bourbon, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
  6. Strain into a glass filled with ice and top with ginger beer.
  7. Garnish with lemon wedge.
  8. Enjoy!
