For the Ginger syrup

1 lemon
225g coarsely chopped fresh ginger with peel
220g granulated sugar
475ml water

For the Toddy

30ml clear honey
60-90ml bourbon
15ml ginger syrup
15ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
1) Make the Ginger syrup. Remove the outer peel of the lemon with a vegetable peeler, taking care not to include too much of the bitter white pith. Finely chop the lemon peel and ginger in a food processor.

2) Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan with the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture and cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

3) Make the Toddy: In a small pan warm the 15ml of the ginger syrup, honey, bourbon and lemon juice until the mixture is hot, but not boiling. Pour into a large heatproof glass or mug. Serve.
