We’ve got ginger ale made from fresh ginger, not extract, in the beverage cases. Made from fresh ginger, cane sugar and seltzer, it is unfiltered which means it is a bit cloudy with bits of real ginger in it. In addition to the original flavor, we also have one with jasmine tea in it and one with pomegranate and hibiscus. The NY Times article about these ginger ales last week recommended adding some dark rum to the fresh ginger flavor to make a Dark and Stormy Cocktail. With summer on the horizon, we also recommend using it in a Presbyterian cocktail, a great way to lighten up bourbon.
1.5 oz bourbon
3 oz ginger ale
3 oz soda water
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add bourbon, add ginger ale and soda and stir.
