Citrus and Ginger Cocktails

It’s no surprise that we love ginger. It isn’t the first time we’ve written about our love affair with the spicy herb root. We’ve also openly proclaimed our love for everything citrus. And you know how we feel about tequila. Can you fathom how crazy mad our love would be if we put citrus in ginger cocktails? No need to wonder. We compiled a list of the 5 most real expressions of citrus and ginger cocktails so that you can see what all the hype is. Cheers!

The Ginger and Citrus Love Story

Amatitan Mule

Amatitán Mule
Once upon a time, there was an oddly shaped root and a bright green citrus. They met in a copper mug and created the Moscow Mule. Sparks flew. And then they decided that they needed to spice things up a bit. So they swapped out the vodka for tequila and in this version, the Amatitán Mule, they added Gentleman Jack. The ginger and citrus spark may have been lit in the original Mule, but in the Amatitán Mule, it’s kismet.

Gingerbread Martini
The holidays come and go, but that doesn’t mean we stop celebrating citrus ginger cocktails like the Gingerbread Martini. Azuñia Reposado organic tequila and real ginger syrup dance with the citrus notes of Tuaca, an Italian Brandy in this beautifully choreographed cocktail. Mix one tonight and taste love.

Open Sesame

Open Sesame
Consider this citrus and ginger cocktail a hidden treasure worthy of moving boulders. The words “Open Sesame” may not actually move mountains, but the cocktail of the same name is magic in a glass. Sesame infused Azuñia Reposado organic tequila, and Madeira wine complement ginger syrup and yuzu, a crisp Japanese citrus.

Silk Road
We love herbaceous drinks, and the Silk Road takes herbaceous and adds a little ginger and citrus fire. Cilantro takes center stage, but ginger and citrus play pivotal roles in this delightful drink. Azuñia Reposado organic tequila, tart pineapple juice, and muddled cilantro mixed with fresh lime and ginger syrup make a new spin.

Not every drink has to have alcohol to make the list of ginger cocktails we love. If you’re looking for a fresh start in the a.m. or looking to detox from your weekend indulgences, try the Grapefruit Gingerade Kombucha Mocktail from AG Taste of Wellbeing. We have fallen head over heels for this fresh grapefruit, gingerade, mint and kombucha in this sparkly anytime libation.
