  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped candied ginger
  • Honey
  • 2 1/2 cups gin
  • 6 2/3 cups cold Jamaican ginger beer

How to make this recipe

  1. In a mini-processor, combine the sugar and candied ginger and process to a coarse powder. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Lightly brush the rims of 10 red-wine glasses or water goblets with honey. Dip the glasses into the ginger sugar and then, if you wish, freeze the glasses until ready to use; do not freeze your best crystal.

  2. Fill each glass halfway with ice cubes and add 1/4 cup of gin. Pour 2/3 cup of ginger beer into each glass and serve.
