And Happy Holidays as well. I can’t believe there are just 13 days left until Christmas (and 15 days until my Birthday)! This Holiday season is flying by, but at least we’ve got 2 weekends left before the big day. Ample time for Holiday cocktail parties. This year, I’m serving up this Ginger Snap Cocktail. Ginger is a favorite spice of mine, so I decided to come up with an easy-to-make cocktail that’s just bursting with ginger flavor.
The Ginger Snap starts with Malahat Spirits Co. Ginger Rum. Malahat Spirits Co. is a local San Diego distillery that makes small batch rum and flavored rums (spiced and ginger). With their Ginger Rum, Malahat Spirits Co. infuses rum with fresh, peeled ginger. 100% natural! You can actually see bits of ginger floating around in the rum, so you know it’s legit. Next, the rum is balanced with homemade ginger simple syrup and freshly squeezed lime juice. Finally, the drink is finished with ginger beer and a simple lime wedge garnish. That’s right, we’ve got some triple ginger action here! Crisp, light and refreshing, the Ginger Snap is the perfect libation for any festive Holiday fête. Continue reading for the recipe.
