Cocktail: Horse's Neck

Looking for a good way to use up some ginger syrup, I came across this recipe for the Horse's Neck in the latest issue of Imbibe magazine. Although the recipe calls for a highball glass, the lowball seemed more appropriate to me, given the ingredient amounts. And the Imbibe cocktail stylist apparently agrees, since the recipe photo shows the drinks in a lowball too.

Cocktail: Horse's Neck
Adapted from a recipe by Garrett Vleck, The Shady Lady Saloon, via Imbibe magazine

1 1/2 oz. bourbon
1/2 oz. ginger syrup (see recipe)
4 dashes angostura bitters
Chilled club soda
Large lemon peel (removed from an entire lemon if you can do it without it breaking)

Combine the bourbon, ginger syrup and angostura bitters in a lowball (rocks) glass and stir to combine. Fill with ice and top with club soda. Garnish with a giant lemon peel.
