History
As far as I know I came up with this after looking at recipes for the Penicillin. Although, really its just a margarita with Honey-Ginger syrup in place of Triple Sec so I'm sure someone came up with it before me.
From other users
  • The Appleton's 12yo really adds a nice smokiness to it which I like. It really combats the sweetness and balances it out for me. — ☆☆☆☆☆
