Ginger Granny

Ginger Granny

Had you ever had a drink at a bar and it was the best thing you ever had and you had to recreate it? That is exactly what this drink is, I had it in a bar in Norway and I knew the ingredients that went in it but not the proportions. It took several attempts to get the ginger and the apple to really stand out in the cocktail but I finally got it! 

 

This cocktail is light and refreshing, almost like drinking a green juice drink but with gin! You will not be disappointed when you make this drink! Don't be overwhelmed with using a emulsion blender for it, it's quick and easy. If you don't have a emulsion blender throw everything in a blender. Yes, I know extra steps than muddling but I promise it's worth it!

  • Ingredients

    Serving size: one delicious drink
     

    • 2 oz of gin, we like Organic Prairie Gin
       
    • 1 oz of lemon juiced, I just use 1/2 a lemon and don't measure it to see if it's exactly 1 oz
       
    • 1 inch piece of ginger, peel and cut into several small pieces
       
    • 1/4 of a Granny Smith apple, cut into several small pieces you can leave the skin on
       
    • 0.75 oz of organic agave
       
    • 2 oz of ginger beer, you may want to add more based on your preference of how strong you want the drink
       
    • Ice
  • Directions

    1. Combine the 2 oz of gin, 1 oz lemon juice, 0.75 oz agave, ginger, and apple in a blender or in a shaker cup to use a emulsion blender. Blend until the apples and ginger are emulsified. Our emulsion blender is easy and simple so I always just use that when I make this drink or any other cocktail that I blend.
       

      Side note: If you do not have a emulsion blender or a regular blender you can just muddle everything together just double or triple the ginger. I highly recommend using at least a blender it really brings out the ginger flavor.
       

    2. Strain and pour over ice, depending on your preference of pulp or not you can strain over a fine mesh strainer.
       

    3. Add the 2 oz of ginger beer then give the drink a good stir. I like my drinks stronger so if you need more ginger beer then feel free to add more. I would add 1 oz at a time until you get the right balance.
       

    4. Enjoy!
