Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sliced ginger
  • 10 cups soda water
  • 4 cups quality bourbon
  • Ice cubes
  • 16 orange wheels, for garnish

Directions

Combine sugar, water, and ginger in large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Once sugar dissolves, remove from the heat and let stand until cool. Strain through a fine sieve.

In a large pitcher, combine the cooled ginger syrup with the soda water and bourbon. Stir to combine. Fill 16 tall glasses with ice and top with the ginger-bourbon mixture. Garnish the rim of each glass with an orange slice and serve immediately.

Note: For individual serving, combine 2 tablespoons of syrup with 1/4 cup of bourbon and a little over 1/2 cup of soda water.
