My first attempt at Skeleton Keys

Heard about this signature drink from Nancy Nall and decided to try it.  You can probably substitute cheaper brands but I decided to go with the top notch ingredients where possible.

Skeleton Key
This cocktail is very easy to make and definitely pleases the masses.
1 oz Woodford Reserve
¾ oz St. Germain
½ oz Lemon Juice
3 oz Fever Tree Ginger Beer
5 Dashes of Angostura Bitters
Pour all ingredients directly into a collins glass except the bitters. Then, add ice and gently stir. Finish by floating the Angostura bitters on top of the cocktail as your garnish.

 I couldn't find fever ginger beer and lemon juice is lemon juice.   The real challenge of course is finding St Germain.  I found a source online and ordered the sample size just in case this turned out to be a gross tasting experiment.

It was not.   

So these were a big hit with my SIL so I imagine I will just order a case of the St Germain from Binny's next payday.
