Every Pitmaster needs a good drink to cool down after a hot day manning the fire, and I have a great one for you right here. I call it a Mississippi Haymaker and it’s packed with refreshing flavors guaranteed to quench your thirst!
This recipe was adapted from an old farmer’s drink (haymaker’s punch). It was drunk after a hot day’s work gathering hay.
The original combines lemon, ginger, molasses, and vinegar into a sweet-tangy drink that rehydrates you better than regular water according to old timers. I like the lemon and ginger combo in this punch and decided that it would make a great “adult” beverage for those hot summer BBQ’s.
I call it the Mississippi Haymaker (cause I’m from Mississippi) and it goes like this:
– 4oz Ginger Simple Syrup*
– 4oz Water
– 2oz Lemon Juice
– 2oz Four Roses Bourbon
– 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
– Lemon slices for garnish
1. Fill a quart mason jar with ice.
2. Add bourbon, lemon juice, ginger syrup, water, and cider vinegar.
3. Place lid on jar and shake, garnish jar with lemon slices and serve.
*Ginger Simple Syrup:
– 1 cup Sugar
– 1 cup Water
– ¼ cup fresh chopped ginger
Combine the sugar and water in a small boiler over medium high heat. Bring to a boil stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the ginger and return to boil. Remove from heat and steep for ½ hour. Strain the syrup and store in an airtight container until ready to use.
