I feel quite odd about the whole fall thing. On one hand, I’m ready for boots and plaid and cozy fires. On the other hand, I will miss swimming and sunshine with all my heart. Know what makes me feel better? The best fall cocktail ever. It has gin. And ginger liqueur. It’s so good you guys!
We came up with this cocktail idea one night when we wanted to make a Moscow Mule, but were missing the right ingredients. We had the copper mug, so we decided to make something similar, but totally different. The result? This delicious drink we have decided to call a Gin & Ginger Fizz. The ginger is from my new favorite liquor–The King’s Ginger liqueur. It’s soooo yummy! There’s also a hint of lime topped off with the savory herb rosemary, for a perfect balance of flavors.
To start, measure out your alcohol servings and add them to a cocktail share with a bit of ice.
Give it a good shake, pour into your mugs and top with whatever sparkling beverage you’d like!
To make sure you get maximum rosemary, give it a good muddling to release the flavor a bit more.
Gin & Ginger Fizz
1 1/2 oz gin
1 1/2 oz King’s Ginger liqueur
12 oz of lime sparkling beverage (we used La Croix)
2 sprigs of rosemary
Add gin and ginger liqueur to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, then pour over ice into 2 copper mugs. Top with sparkling beverage. Add sprig of rosemary to each, muddling slightly to release flavor. Enjoy!
I could totally see this being served at an upcoming holiday party. The copper mug and the rosemary sprig add to the fall-ness of it all. Also, if you’re wondering where the mugs are from, I got these ones on Amazon and love them! Give this drink a try and tell me what you think!
