Sweet and spicy, a ginger cocktail is perfect to warm the bones. Ginger is so good for you, too. It aids digestion, helps with nausea and seasickness, and tastes great in stir-frys, soups, and marinades. We love ginger so much in our house that we named one of our Labs Ginger.
This cocktail is so delicious – I wish I could take credit for it. I found it on the Domaine De Canton website and adapted it to quantities that fit our martini glasses. Their website is loaded with cocktail and food recipes. If you love ginger, this is the site for you.
Don’t forget to keep your martini glasses in the freezer so they are ready and frosty whenever you want.
The Gold Rush
Makes 2 martinis
- 4½oz. of Domaine De Canton ginger liqueur
- 3 oz. Bourbon (I used Woodford Reserve)
- 1½ oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with crushed ice. Pour in the Domaine De Canton and the Bourbon. Stir and let sit for 1- 2 minutes to mellow. Add the lemon juice. Now shake, shake, shake the cocktail shaker as hard as you can.
Strain into chilled martini glasses garnished with a cherry.
