0.5 oz Stirrings ginger liqueur
3 dashes Regan No. 6 orange bitters
2 lemon wedges
1/2 a handful of mint
Ginger beer, to top
Muddle 1 lemon wedge and the mint in a mixing glass. Add whiskey, ginger liqueur and bitters and ice and shake well. Strain into an iced highball glass, top with the ginger beer and garnish with the other lemon wedge.
