A new drink

Again, having searched the internets and found nothing, I am forced to claim authorship of the following:


  • 1 part ginger liqueur
  • 1 part vodka
  • 1/2 part lime juice

Shake with ice, pour into a martini glass. I tried it with both Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice and regular lime juice. Both are yummy. You might try upping the lime to a full part, too.

If you couldn’t tell, I bought a bottle of Canton ginger liqueur yesterday. I also bought a bottle of Nocello walnut liqueur. It’s problematic, with a muddy, dark, bitter flavor. I did a few combinations, applejack, the ginger, but nothing satisfactory yet. The closest so far is 1 part Nocello, 1 part Godiva, and 2 parts Bailey’s. More work is called for.

Name the ginger drink for me.

  1. I immediately wanted it to be named after me, but alas, I’m not actually ‘a ginger.’ Still, if my last name were Lime instead of Lemmon, it’d be a palindrome.
