1ozLemon juice (double strained, chilled)

6drCardamom bitters
Pour vodka, St. Germain, fresh lemon juice, and simple into a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into chilled coupe. Add bitters.
I used Smirnoff for ginger infusion since it was $14 for a 1.75. I peeled a bunch of ginger the size of a baby's arm, put in in a large mason jar and added the vodka. After a week, strained out the solids. Cardamom bitters were a bit more complicated. I haven't tried Scappy's, but i hear it's good.

Curated this slightly - changed flavored vodka, Smirnoff to vodka, Smirnoff - generally, if you're doing the flavoring, it's better to put that in the notes field. Removed fresh squeezed from lemon juice - we assume you're using fresh stuff.

Oh, and as the proud owner of Scrappy's Cardamom, it's weapons grade stuff. 6 drops is going to blow out your drink.
