I love the taste and spiciness of ginger. I love it in Asian food, bakery items, and cocktails. The Mr., well he is not so sure. Every single time we go out to dinner and he sees something on the menu that he thinks he might want and it has ginger in it, he always asks “Do I like ginger?”. I always respond with “Yes, you like ginger. You don’t like curry.”. We have had this same conversation for 18 years. I truly and deeply love him, but that conversation gets a little old, over and over.
The flavors in any ginger cocktail are very specific. Either you like ginger or you don’t. If you like ginger, you’ll love this cocktail. Whenever I’ve had a simple Dark and Stormy, I love the complexity and spiciness of the ginger with the rum. This time I thought that I would bring out a little tart and sweet with a few fresh blackberries made into a syrup.
