Whirling Tiger (Death & Co. Recipe)


There are a number of martial arts titled drinks involving whiskey in the Death & Co. book. This one unusually uses fuji apple juice--which might be the only Japanese-ish thing this drink has going for it. Overall, the Whirling Tiger is much more of a fall cocktail that tastes like a ginger spiced cold cider with the happy addition of bourbon. 

Again, I used my ginger brandy to flavor the simple syrup for this recipe so I didn't have to have a lengthy infusion. 

  • 2 oz. Buffalo Trace bourbon
  • 1 oz. fuji apple juice (R. W. Knudsen apple juice used)
  • 3/4 oz. apple juice
  • 1/2 oz. ginger syrup (simple and ginger brandy used)
  • 1 fuji apple slice

Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass fulled with ice. Garnish with the apple slice.
