The Ginger Margarita

I’ve been eyeballing this bottle Ginger Liqueur at the Liquor store. You might have seen it, the bottle is shaped similarly to a piece of bamboo in a tall frosted bottle. Domaine de Canton is the brand. Anyway I thought it would make a great mixer but at $30 a bottle I wanted to sample it first. Turns out my local hole had some airplane bottles for $4 bucks so it was mixing time. After playing with a few bottles I came about this.

The Ginger Marq

2oz. Blanco Tequila
1oz. Canton Ginger Liqueur
1/2 Lime, juiced
Splash of Club Soda

Its one damn tasty cocktail with a little bite from the ginger. The tequila was El Charro which is available for under $15 bucks, its a decent sipper and a great 100% agave mixer without breaking the bank.

    If you liked the Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, try shaking it with Crop Organic Cucumber Vodka. We call it ‘East Meets West.’ Cheers!

    Your cocktail sounds very good. I’ll have to look for the ginger liqueur when we are in New Hampshire. I don’t think the stores here in our part of Maine will carry it.

      The brand is Domaine de Canton, if you cant find it check out or another online retailer if your state accepts incoming alcohol shipments.

      Try TempleDowntowns recipe below too. I made a variation on it last night

      2oz Vodka
      1oz Ginger Liqueur
      5-6 thinly sliced cucumbers
