Ginger Beer

  • SERVINGS: Makes about 32 ounces

This uncarbonated staple was adapted from Dale DeGroff's Craft of the Cocktail. Although it's a syrup, pros refer to it as "ginger beer." To make your own fizzy version, stir together equal parts of the syrup and ginger ale.

Plus: The Dark 'n Stormy Cocktail

  1. 4 cups water

  3. 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  4. 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
