As many of you know I enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. I create all manner of foods both savoury and sweet and love to have time to just play and experiment with flavours. Being a busy mum of
three no make that four (forgot to include the hubby) I don’t get much time to do that but I squeeze it in once in a while. Over Christmas I managed to get a few minutes of kitchen play time and decided to experiment making a new cocktail which features a product that I only recently got to try Spiced Ginger Beer from Fentimans. This is just as lovely as their original ginger beer but with a more exotic flavour.
The ginger flavour was not as strong as in some ginger beers and I wanted to give it an added kick and also add a splash of lemon and lime as these flavours work well together. With this in my mind I began experimenting and from there my Tangy Ginger Breeze was born.
20-25ml Kings ginger liqueur
165ml Fentimans spiced ginger beer (half a bottle)
100ml 7up or sprite
Ice cube if required
A slice of lemon or lime to garnish
Pour the ginger liqueur into a tall glass. Slowly add in the ginger beer and then the 7up / sprite so it does do not end up with a large head of foam. If it isn’t cold enough add some ice cubes, garnish with a slice of lemon or lime and serve.
You might want to repeat the above as it’s super yummy , enjoy round 2!
