NAFTA Cooler

I'm mostly recording this on the basis of its name, which emerged spontaneously from what I had at hand.

3/4 oz bourbon (mmmmm, Buffalo Trace)
3/4 oz aƱejo tequila
3/4 oz aged rum (I used Pusser's, which has both a fascinating history and a wonderful funk)
1/2 oz rich ginger syrup (use Turbinado or other natural sugar, with a sugar-to-water ratio of about 1.5:1)
Juice of 1/2 lime

Pour over ice in a Collins glass, stir well, and fill with soda water.

I love long drinks.  Amazingly, this remains refreshing despite the cold weather where I live.  The result is something like a deep and complex Long Island Iced Tea.  Alternate name: the Panama Canal Iced Tea.
