If you get a taste for it, Jeffrey Morgenthaler has an easy recipe for making your own ginger beer, which is fun to try and impresses guests.
If you buy it, I personally like Old Jamaica Ginger Beer - it's more spicy than the other kind available here which is Fever Tree.
- 5 cl dark rum - I used Gosling's Black Seal
- 15 cl ginger beer
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- Dash of Bitter Truth Creole bitters
Stir with ice in a not too fancy but comfortable glass - you are not in a cocktail bar you a sitting on the beach in a tropical paradise somewhere ;) Garnish with sprig of mint.
