Why We Love The Ginger Spice Cocktail
Warm and tangy, complex and spicy is all found within the ginger spice cocktail recipe. Using spice rum, lime and blackberries together make a delicious and easy to make cocktail.
What Goes into the Cocktail?
This simple cocktail requires only a few ingredients.
Spiced rum can vary a lot depending on the rum you use. There are a lot of options here, but here are a few you could try:
- Goslings Black Seal Rum - often used within a dark n stormy.
- Kraken Spiced Rum - A modern day classic.
- Captain Morgan's spiced rum - if you're in a pinch this works perfectly as well.
Lime Juice is adds acidity and Balance to the drink. Lime juice adds a tart and acidic element to cocktails, which helps balance out the flavours of the other ingredients. Acidity can enhance the overall taste and make the drink more refreshing. We always recommend using fresh lime as this adds a much great and more powerful flavour to the cocktail.
We love blackberries as a garnish and crushed within a cocktail. They add a sweetness to the drink that enhances the overall flavour.
Double Dutch Cranberry & Ginger Tonic
Warm and tangy, complex and spicy. The essence of seduction, brought together the piquancy of quinine with the zinginess of cranberry and ginger’s. It works perfectly in cocktails like the ginger spice and is a certain crowd pleaser.
