I started making Ginger Beer about a year ago, at first I think my family was a bit skeptical, none of us had tried it. Then came our first Dark and Stormy and we never looked back. It’s delicious all on it’s own, but then in a cocktail something spectacular happens. It’s pricey to purchase but can be made very inexpensively. Give it a try!
We will start with the Cocktail that launched a thousand gallons of Ginger Beer being made at my house….
My Husband LOVES this, so refreshing!
