Vera (Firefly cocktail)
Ingredients:2 oz. Bourbon whiskey1/2 oz. Bacardi 1511/2 oz. Sake3/4 oz ginger syrup3-4 dashes Angostura Bitters
Instructions for Ginger Syrup:1 cup of water1 cup of sugar1/2 cup fresh diced GingerIn a pot or large pan, add the water, sugar, and half of the ginger in the beginning.  Boil for 1-2 minutes while mixing. Then add the other half once the first batch gets mushy. This makes it nice and spicy.  Let sit until everything is nice and syrupy, then remove from the stove and let cool. 
Directions: Add ginger syrup and bitters to an Old Fashioned Glass.  Next add the rum and whiskey. Fill with cubed ice then float the Sake on top. Before drinking, give the glass a quick swirl to lightly distribute Sake.
Note from the creator:

I figured if Jane would drink a cocktail, it would be one of the original and manliest of cocktails, and Old-Fashion. But in the Firefly universe, American and Chinese cultures have mixed, so I felt it needed an Asian twist. This is where the ginger syrup and Sake comes in. The Bacardi 151 bumps the manliness factor of this drink up by giving a much higher alcohol content, plus the Bacardi gives an extra spicy, smokey flavor. Enjoy yourself a Vera.

Two weeks into a new job and it was Halloween. What better way to confuse the new coworkers than by donning my trusty Jayne hat?
