Penicillin RX Shot ▶️

This variation of a classic Penicillin cocktail swaps out the Scotch for SILO Hayloft whiskey with a splash of SILO Maple Whiskey for a smokey sweetness.  The lemon juice and lemon-ginger syrup are the key ingredients to the restorative Hot Toddy, which inspired the name Penicillin but with Vermont twist.
