All about ginger beer
What is ginger beer?
A pivotal piece of many cocktail recipes - ginger beer is the ingredient that everyone needs and loves. With a similar fresh ginger taste and bubbly feel to ginger ale but with a little something extra, this beer's origins date back as far as the 18th century. Yorkshire, England believed to be its birthplace. Ginger beer is a lively drink with no alcohol that serves well as a standalone beverage or as a base for mixed drinks and cocktails. The blend of ginger, water and sugar boasts a spicy, aromatic flavor with sweet notes and refreshing effervescence that brings drinks alive. It undergoes yeast fermentation before the addition of carbonation to produce a flavorful beer with everlasting fizz and the fresh taste of ginger.
Cocktail and mixed drinks
Combine this spicy beer with liquors, juices, syrups, sodas and sparkling beverages to come up with refreshing party drinks. With its mellow ginger flavor and sweet notes, ginger beer is often the perfect ingredient for any cocktail that needs a little fizz. It's the star ingredient in popular cocktails like the Moscow Mule and Mexican Mule (pick between vodka or tequila and you'll have one or the other) and the rum-based Dark and Stormy. Use as the base for refreshing cranberry cocktails served in an old-fashioned, ice-filled glass any time of year. Pair with tequila for delicious beverages served with a dash of lime juice on ice. Lemonade and summer go hand-in-hand with the addition of this aromatic beer to make refreshments like spiked lemonade with spicy notes of ginger for a fizzy party punch to make summer BBQ luncheons sparkle.
