    Ingredients

    • 2 oz. good vodka

    • 6 oz. Q Ginger Beer

    • Half a Lime

    Serving

    Makes one drink

    Method

    Fill a highball glass or copper mug with ice. Pour in the vodka and squeeze in the lime, leaving the lime shell in the glass. Then pour in the Q Ginger Beer (from a fresh bottle), and gently stir. Wow – spicy, bubbly, and clean.

    Variations

    Because Q Ginger Beer is less sweet than other ginger beers, it leaves more room to add a special flair. Try adding fresh juice (watermelon is great!) or a liqueur (use Sorrel for a Flatbush Mule).

    Ingredients

    • 2 oz. good tequila

    • 6 oz. Q Grapefruit

    • Coarse salt

    • Half a jalapeno, finely chopped

    • Two lime wedges

    Serving

    Makes one drink

    Method

    Mix salt and jalapeno and spread out on a plate. Run a lime along the rim of a highball or “cosmopolitan” glass, then dip the rim into the salt mixture. Fill the glass with ice. Pour in the tequila and squeeze in a lime. Then pour in the Q Grapefruit. Gently stir and garnish with a lime.

    Variations

    Try mezcal rather than tequila for a smokier drink.

    Ingredients

    • 2 oz. dark rum

    • 6 oz. Q Ginger Beer

    • Half a lime

    Serving

    Makes one drink

    Method

    Fill a highball glass with fresh ice. Pour in the Q Ginger Beer and squeeze in the lime. Top with the rum so it floats on the top, looking like a dark storm cloud that will force you to stay at the bar all afternoon. Stay at the bar all afternoon.

    Variations

    Because Q Ginger Beer is less sweet than other ginger beers, it leaves more room to add a modifier. Try adding 2 oz. fresh juice – pineapple for a Summer Storm or apple cider for a Dark, Stormy, and Cidery.

    Method
