Reverse Penicillin

Reverse Penicillin

This iced riff on a hot toddy was born in NYC around 2005 and invented by cocktail Maestro Sam Ross. The combination of Meyer Lemonpop, honey, ginger, and whiskey sings a sweet melody that’s sure to brighten any day.


1.5 oz Meyer Lemonpop
.75 oz scotch
.75 oz lemon juice
.5 oz honey syrup
.5 oz ginger syrup
.25 oz Islay whiskey (or a spritz over the glass once finished)


    Combine all ingredients into shaker tin.
    Shake hard with 5 ice cubes for 5 seconds.
    Strain into a double old-fashioned glass filled with ice.
    Spritz with Islay whiskey (if using), and garnish with lemon peel or candied ginger.
