BREAKING BAD IS BACK! THIS CALLS FOR A CELEBRATION!
A few weeks ago I made some homemade Lemon Verbena simple syrup, because my Lemon Verbena plant was exploding. It's the easiest thing to whip up and can be used in multiple things. Here's the recipe:
1 cup organic sugar
1 cup water
1/2 cup lemon verbena leaves
Simmer on low the sugar and water until blended together. Remove from heat. Twist Lemon Verbena leaves gently to help release flavor, then add to syrup mixture. Let sit for 15 minutes before removing.
So easy, right??
Sunday night came, and I got an idea. A couple days before Brian and I went to visit the Koval Distillery here in Chicago. What a magical place full of delicious whiskey. We ended up buying their Dark Spelt Whiskey, and I thought to myself, I wonder how that would be with the Lemon Verbena simply syrup....
So comes the w.w. cocktail:
1 part Dark Spelt Koval Whiskey
1 part homemade lemon verbena simple syrup
3 ice cubes
Spring of lemon verbena for garnish
This just makes you want to drink all of the Koval Spelt Whiskey....
