    Ginger Beer Concentrate Recipe - Cookie and Kate

    I may leave out the sweetener from the concentrate completely and then try it with adding the vanilla stevia liquid I like on a per drink basis. I can always make up a bottle of some syrup from my organic raw cane sugar (sucanat) to add to it as well to sweeten after mixing for husband since he prefers the real deal. Though husband is not generally a fan of my super spicy ginger beers... maybe he'll like it at half dose? LOL

    I'll be drinking ginger-lime-mint sodas all lovely summer long!
    That looks awesome! I bookmarked that one fersure.

    Come summer, what alcohol would pair well with that, do you think?

      All of them.
      Rums in particuar for a good Dark and Stormy. You could choose a clear rum for a cleaner taste though.
      Hendrick's Gin. (The only gin I drink... YMMV, preference and all.)
      Bourbon of course (good bourbon)... with a bit of mint added IMO.

      Vodka- the Moscow Mule is really tasty if you make it with some added vanilla, and a splash of pear nectar! (I use vanilla bean paste.)
      Hell... I guess that's not really a Moscow Mule anymore, but it's a fine drink.

      There is a drinks list at the bottom of that page!
      I love all drinks LIME and Ginger! It's a bit of an obsession. I play with them.

      It occurs to me that I've never really done tequila with gingerbeer.
      Hmm... it does seem that there might just be a flavor clash there.

      • Oh, they all look good. In 32 days, I'm going to the one grocery store I know that has fresh ginger and a great alcohol selection.

        • Hendrick's gin isn't the only one I will drink - I enjoy good old Tangueray and can switch up with some Bombay Sapphire - but it is truly my fave. Odd how tastes change, used to hate gin, and now am a gin snob. That's not a martini... it has vodka in it.

          Yes, thoughts are turning to booze, the countdown has begun. This week has lasted, by my estimation, approximately all fargin year long.

          • My thing with Hendrick's is easily explainable.
            When I was 16 I had a night with a fifth of cheap gin in which I consumed near the entire thing neat, right from the neck of the bottle.
            I didn't touch, or really even get NEAR gin again for years.
            *shiver*

            Now I find Hendrick's pleasant because it is herbal and complex in a good way, without it shoving juniper berries in my face in a way that makes me want to run screaming from *omg what have I done to myself* flashbacks. Heh.

            • Oh, there are a lot of shitty gins. Gins that taste like cough syrup.

              I hadn't had gin since my 20s, then read an article that literally piqued my interest enough to give them a try again. Same with bourbon and Scotch.

                With gin it's pretty much anything that is juniper forward that puts me off... I've tentatively tried a few of the ones that are supposed to be better such as Sapphire.
                Hendrick's and I get along. So that's where I stay. It's a safe place for gin and me.
                Gin is not one of my more adventurous avenues.

                Bourbons I LOVE, and I'm a genuine snob over.
                And Rums.
                Scotch I admit I have not learned to like yet... I try on occasion. And fail. I was given Dewar's White Label awfulness by an alcoholic relative because they thought it would be funny when I was a child. ICK.
                I do like a few Irish Whiskeys though... Red Breast 12yr is my solid go to.
                Tequilas too I'm picky about and enjoy if they are good... but GRRRR *angry face* at the bad ones.

                As little as I actually drink, you'd think I was an alcoholic by my liquor collection!
                That's what husband teases me about anyway.
                I once bought a small bottle of Remy VSOP(they had crap for cognac selection, and I was leaving it at brother's house anyway) and a decent bottle of Chardonnay (Jadot,$15 maybe) while visiting my brother... and the cashier lady wanted to know if I wanted the little bottle of Remy bagged separately for the ride home. I think she thought I was going to DRINK it. And I was all momentarily confused and said "No, I'm just baking a chicken..." Which really got her attention I guess, because then she looked at me like I had two heads. Silly rural folks.
                Admittedly, cooking generally only takes about half a bottle of wine, which means the cook should enjoy the other half during the meal preparation IMO.

                  There's a lot of truth to that, and I think the dearly departed Ms. Childs would agree also. She was one of the first to advise that we never cook with a wine that we wouldn't drink. And then when we watched her cook, she showed us why.

                    I loved watching Julia Child when I was growing up... on PBS I believe. The old black and white programs. Heck, I still like catching those old shows sometimes.
                    I'm pretty sure that watching her informed/formed my ability to cook, which I have done from a very early age, as much as spending time with my grandmothers in their kitchens did.

                    • Hell yeah, PBS. That's all my mom watched for a long time, so it's all I watched too. We used to watch This Old House and Yankee Workshop with my dad.

                      • PBS was about all we kids were allowed to watch up until I was 6 or 7. I knew Fraggle Rock, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Sesame Street like most kids knew Transformers.
                        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                          I cried when Fred Rogers died. It was like losing a member of the family.

                                It really was. I think I cried more for him than for some family members.
