1½ ounces bourbon
½ ounce Velvet Falernum
½ ounce fresh lime juice
½ ounce 1:1 ginger-infused simple syrup
Grains of paradise for garnish*
Related to cardamom and ginger, this West African spice gives a pungent peppery taste with a hint of citrus and ginger flavors.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain over fresh ice into old-fashioned glass. Garnish with pinch of grains of paradise.
