Ginger has always been a spice that has interested human beings, which is why it has been an important of many Asian cuisines for centuries now. It is no surprise that the spice/medicine has made its way into the alcoholic world, as we all have probably enjoyed a ginger beer at some point. The Dark and Stormy proves that ginger can also go well with liquor, as it incorporates ginger beer – but it was only inevitable that someone create a ginger martini, as the martini might have the most variations out of all of the modern cocktail drinks. Ginger has also experienced a resurgence, as people are more interested than ever in healthy beverage trends, such as kombucha or raw juices in general. A ginger martini is a refreshing way to enjoy a classic cocktail with a spicy twist.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ ounces of vodka
  • 1 ½ ounces of ginger liqueur
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients over ice into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

For those who want a stronger martini, feel free to add a little more vodka than the recipe suggests. For those who want a garnish, a lemon twist is most common for a ginger martini. For those who want to get a little bit more hands-on, or “authentic”, the option of making your own ginger syrup is always an option. This, of course, leads to a sweeter taste, and should only be considered if the drinkers have a sweet tooth. As with any martini, feel free to use gin instead of vodka, if that is preferred.

If “mocktinis” are needed – replace the vodka or gin with club soda, seltzer water, or mineral water. The martini can also be a great way to provide a refreshing drink in the water, as ginger is often considered a way to combat colds, and is also known as an anti-inflammatory agent. Whether you are at a winter gathering, or simply inside the house and want a cozy martini – enjoy a ginger martini today!
