It’s week 2 of the summer cocktail series and you will be glad you came back for more. I am sharing a ginger beer cocktail, which combines a few of my favorite summer flavors, plus 9 other refreshing cocktails you are going to want to try this summer. Read on for all the details.
I wanted to use ginger beer in this week’s cocktail as well as some herbs that are flourishing in my tiered planter. Cocktails made with ginger beer have a sweet and spicey combination that you just caint find in other drinks.
I tried my hand at a ginger beer mojito and it came out perfect! This summer cocktail blends refreshing citrus, spicy ginger and cool mint. I was not disappointed and in fact have had a few this past week since first creating it.
How to make a ginger beer mojito
I came across this good ginger beer a few months back and it has quickly become my favorite mixer. It’s a bit sweet, but I like the flavor and how good it tastes with fresh lime.
Head to your local liquor store and you will find a host of different varieties ranging from sweet to spicey. Some even have pieces of real ginger in the bottle. It’s a carbonated non alcoholic soda made with ginger root, think along the lines of root beer. The name can be deceiving.
I recommend trying a few different varieties and selecting your favorite to make cocktails. You may find that a sweet version works for a mojito while a spicier ginger beer is ideal for a mule.
You will also need to gather some fresh mint. This is an easy herb to grow in a kitchen planter or you can buy it fresh at a farmer’s marker. A fresh lime in another key ingredient in this cocktail.
Finally, a summer drink isn’t complete without rum. This cocktail combines sweet rum and ginger beer to create a delicious flavor perfect for a warm day.
I also invested in the muddler you see in the video recently, it was inexpensive from Amazon and works well. It’s dishwasher safe and the ends won’t scratch any of your glassware.
