BY: Signe Langford

We’ve used non-alcoholic ginger beer in this recipe, but for an extra-spirited version, replace with Crabbies Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer (LCBO 272807, 500 mL).

Ice cubes
1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped peeled fresh ginger root
6 large fresh mint leaves, rubbed and torn; plus extra for garnishing
2 oz gin
1 tbsp (15 mL) Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur (LCBO 157917)
Ice cold ginger beer for topping up
2 pieces of candied ginger and more fresh mint to garnish; optional

1. Into a cocktail shaker with 4 to 6 ice cubes add the ginger, mint, gin and ginger liqueur. Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds to release the flavours from the ginger and mint.

2. Strain into glasses with ice and top up with the ginger beer.

3. Garnish with a piece of candied ginger, if desired, and more fresh mint.
