Joe’s Front Porch

Joe Sommers at Deckard’s American Tavern in Atlanta sends us this sweet treat: begin with a tall rocks glass filled with with ice. Add 1.5 ounces of Vodka 14, 2 teaspoons of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, 3-4 dashes of lemon bitters, 3-4 dashes of peach bitters, and 2 teaspoons of ginger-infused simple syrup. This can be crafted by simply adding two ounces of fresh ginger, thinly sliced, to a 1.5 cup batch of simple syrup and allowing it to simmer for about 10 minutes before straining. Stir these ingredients thoroughly and top off with an equal amount of soda water and ginger beer. Garnish with a lemon twist.
