I’m officially obsessed with ginger beer. You used to only see it utilized in a good old Moscow mule, but I increasingly find it turning up in all kinds of cocktails, from rum-based drinks to poptails. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all good.
Here’s one of the most creative uses of ginger beer I’ve seen yet — combined with carrots and cognac for one killer cocktails from Kevin Diedrich of Jasper’s Corner Tap & Kitchen in San Francisco.
What’s Up Doc?
1 oz Royal Combier
2 oz carrot juice
1 oz ginger beer
1/2 oz lemon juice
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Shake all ingredients and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
