Looking for a Snappy Cocktail? Check Out These Two Cocktails Featuring Ginger! Day 4 of 12 Drinks of Xmas!

I love the snappy, sassy, spicy flavor of ginger. I have been known to slice ginger thinly and toss it into a canned soup or into a cup of tea. Here’s a more interesting way to use ginger – in a couple of cocktails courtesy of Santa Margherita wines.

 

 

Ginger and Jasmine

SERVINGS: 2
PAIRS WITH SANTA MARGHERITA SPARKLING ROSÉ

INGREDIENTS
⅓ cup simple syrup

8 slices fresh ginger

6 oz room temperature steeped Jasmine tea

3 oz vodka (optional)

1½ oz fresh lemon juice

A generous splash of Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé

DIRECTIONS
Muddle the ginger and simple syrup together.
Add in the tea, lemon juice, and vodka (optional).
Strain over a glass and add a generous splash of Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé on top.
Garnish with lemon twist.

 

 

Ginger Sage cocktails

 

PAIRS WITH
SANTA MARGHERITA PROSECCO SUPERIORE DOCG

INGREDIENTS
1 bottle of Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG

Simple Syrup

1 cup honey

3 cups water

2 whole pears, peeled, cored and diced

1 large piece of ginger, peeled and diced

20 fresh sage leaves (plus more for garnish)

DIRECTIONS
In a saucepan combine the honey and water over medium heat and bring to a light boil.
Turn the heat down to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the honey has dissolved completely.
Add the pears, ginger and sage leaves.
Simmer, stirring occasionally until the mixture has reduced by 1/3 (about 15-20 minutes).
Remove from heat and let the mixture steep for an additional 10 minutes.
Strain the syrup into a large canning jar or thick glass bowl.
Discard the ginger and sage leaves.
Place a few pieces of the cooked pear into each stemless wine glass followed by 2 tbsps of the simple syrup.
Add Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore and serve.

 

Enjoy your day after Christmas and the sales.. and then follow it up as your day winds down with one of these two great cocktails!
