Four Gingers

As Promised, Ginger Vodka Recipes Shared With Friends

Yesterday I made a 100-proof vodka infusion using fresh ginger that I grated into a pot of steaming vodka. The decoction retains all the fresh flavor of ginger and most of its alcoholic potency. Now I am trying out new drink recipes I am coming up with. I also intend to substitute my ginger vodka for ginger brandy in classic cocktails like the Ginger Snap and Chatham Cocktail. Here’s what I tried today!
Four Gingers (Above)
  • 1 1/2  oz. 2 Gingers Irish whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. Ginger vodka
Stir on ice. Add lemon wheel and top with ginger beer.
(Note: The glass says Irish Cream. The drink contains none but the glass is appropriately Irish for this drink.)
