We'll be kicking off the month of May with all things Ginger!
Yes you heard us! And yes, we know all the benefits of ginger, but can it be used successfully in cocktails? There's the real issue with ginger that it does overwhelm many other flavours. Ginger in a delicate cocktail may not work- but that's no reason not to play around and experiment!
We've created four awesome ginger inspired cocktail recipes that we will release weekly, ranging from non-alcoholic classics to more 'complex' cocktails using Mezcal, Aperol and saline solution!
Tune in, and as always, give us your feedback, pictures of your home creations or let us know what you'd like to see as our hero ingredients for the next "Cocktails with Benefits" segment!
Ginger Margarita Zing
We did a similar recipe to this last year on our blog and thought we'd revisit to see if it's as good as we remember. Yes. Yes it is.
And as we are being all 'beneficial' we've chosen to use freshly squeezed lime and orange in this recipe, which means it's also jam-packed full of Vitamin C!
Give it a go- it's a beautiful cocktail for garden parties or lazy Sunday afternoons.
50ml Silver Tequila
25ml Fresh Lime Juice
10ml- Fresh Orange Juice
10ml- Organic agave
Fresh Ginger Slices AND/OR 50ml Ginger Zinger Shot
Add the Tequila (or AF alternative), fresh lime, fresh orange and agave into a cocktail shaker.
Thinly slice your ginger into strips (it doesn't matter if you leave the skin on) and add 4-5 into the shaker.
(For an extra gingery kick, if you go past a Holland & Barrett pick up a couple of bottles of Ginger Zinger Shots. They give the cocktail a fiery kick and add more liquid making it a larger serve.)
Use a muddler to really squash the ginger down into the bottom of the shaker.
Add a handful of ice and shake hard for roughly 15 seconds.
Strain the liquid into a chilled martini glass and garnish with some thin strips of ginger.
If you liked the sound of this recipe you're bound to like our award-winning Grapefruit Margarita! Available as a single bottle or in a gift-box of three. It's made with organic agave and organic orange blossom!
