Cocktail: Ginger Fruit Spritzer


Leftover fruit salad?  Check.
Bottle of (cheap?) Champagne? Check.

Now all you need is a bottle of awesome ginger liqueur!  This bottle of Domaine de Canton isn’t the cheapest, at about $30 a bottle, but it goes a long way, and is great for making innovative cocktails.  A little sweet ginger liqueur is also great to spruce up a glass of white wine.

This cocktail really was the result of some leftover fruit salad from a party, combined with my ginger addiction.  It turned out to be delicious!

1 part Canton Ginger Liqueur
2 parts Champagne (or sparkling wine)
spoonful of fruit salad (or any chopped sweet fruits)

Ginger fruit spritzer 300x225   Cocktail: Ginger Fruit Spritzer

Ginger fruit spritzer: Champagne, Ginger Liqueur, fresh fruit

Add all ingredients to a glass.  Optionally garnish with a spring of mint.

Refreshing and slightly sweet!

The Bloomingdale cocktail


wpid 2011 03 26 18 32 17 464   The Bloomingdale cocktail

Delicious, slightly sweet, berry and lime cocktail:

Two parts vodka, muddled with one ripe strawberry
1 part st germain elder flower liqueur
Dash of cassis / blackcurrant liqueur.. Chambord is a good substitute
Top with equal parts simply limeade and soda water

Feel free to play with the ratios, or use tonic instead of soda water for a less sweet mix, or fresh lime juice /mineral water/and simple syrup for more control over the sweetness.
