Ginger beer is a nonalcoholic fizzy beverage with a pop of spicy ginger. It's the flavor secret in this spicy but refreshing cocktail.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 5 ingredients. Fill 1 (16-oz.) glass or Mason jar with crushed ice. Pour bourbon mixture over ice; top with ginger beer (about 1/3 cup). Garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.

Step 2

Note: We tested with Maker's Mark Bourbon, Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, and Reed's Extra Ginger Brew and Goya Jamaican Style Ginger Beer.

What a refreshing, winter drink. Yes it has multiple ingredients and yes I converted to ounces, etc., but we loved it and declared it a keeper. Ginger beer is such an under used ingredient and this recipe makes the most of it's spicy flavor.
