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.
