Got Ginger?

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.

Our Oceanspray Ginger, twelve years old. Two knee replacements and a stomach operation and she’s still going strong.

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.

Cheers!
