Here at Hatchery, we’re big fans of muddling. There’s no better way to draw essential oils and aromatics out of ingredients like sage and fresh lemon than with a few twists of the muddler—and it truly makes all the difference when you’re sipping on this cocktail. The herbaceous elements help to temper otherwise strong whiskey, which helps to incorporate the mild zip of RAFT Lemon Ginger Syrup seamlessly.
