Tough Love

Tough Love

At first sip, savor the scent of thyme, followed by the taste of crisp lemon, tart Kombucha and subtle ginger. Then the peppery cayenne hits perfectly. This is refreshing. The bourbon is light enough to appeal to non-bourbon lovers, too.

1½ ounces Stroudwater Bourbon

¾ ounce fresh lemon juice

¾ ounce honey syrup (equal parts honey and water)

A pinch cayenne pepper

2 ounces Urban Farm Fermentory Ginger Root Kombucha

Thyme sprig for garnish

Shake all ingredients except Kombucha until chilled, strain over fresh ice in a large rocks glass. Top with kombucha. Garnish with a thyme spring.
