Signature Cocktail – Ginger & Goji Glow

Posted on Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

The Ginger & Goji Glow is a signature cocktail I created for a special event a friend is hosting. She will serve it as a punch. I get a major kick out of inventing custom cocktails for special people and occasions.  The Ginger & Goji Glow was inspired by the classic cocktail Dark & Stormy, which is rum, ginger beer and lime. Rum and ginger beer together are a winner, especially this time of the year. The pumpkin butter gives it a fall taste twist, and the lemon juice balances the sweetness of the ginger beer. The rum-soaked goji berries add a fun pop of color and a punch of extra flavor. My generous friend gave me her blessing to share the recipe here.

Ginger & Goji Glow

  • 1 1/2 ounces dark rum
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin butter (I used Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • garnish of two rum-soaked goji berries

Mix with ice and strain. Or serve over ice cubes. Works well as a punch.
