Ginger Libation

A Ginger Libation is a fuss-free, delicious cocktail made with ginger beer and vodka.

We like to use a strong ginger beer rather than ginger ale for this cocktail. Ginger beer is made by fermenting fresh ginger and sugar, while ginger ale is either fermented with whey or made by mixing soda water or club soda with artificial or real ginger syrup.

Many ginger beers contain honey, which is not vegan, so look out for that when choosing a brand. Fever-Tree Ginger Beer is a good vegan brand.

We enjoy Peabody Jones Vodka, made by Woodinville Whisky Co. The vodka, which is distilled from soft winter wheat that’s grown in Washington State, is 100% vegan and crafted in small batches. The company describes the vodka as “Delightfully smooth, with a creamy mouth feel and hints of butterscotch, vanilla and almond on the nose.”

Of course you can use any vodka that you like.
