“Bully Boy White Whiskey and Bonnie’s strawberry rhubarb jam, the name Franklin’s Ghost pays homage to the rumor that Benjamin Franklin first introduced rhubarb seeds to the American East Coast, while white whiskey delivers an ethereal, ghost-like quality to the cocktail with nuttiness from Benedictine and Orgeat (almond syrup). The small pinch of salt integrates the flavors while masking any underlying bitterness, resulting in a bright, smooth cocktail.”
