I made this for a fall Piano recital and chilled it with ice from Sonic. they sell bags of crushed ice. Made a triple batch and brought very little of it home. Went well. Have to save this for future uses.

I cannot believe this recipe has been posted for 3 years without someone trying it! This may very well be my go-to Autumn drink. I loved this! The ginger ale really gives it that little zing.....not to mention the bubbles! Thnx for much for sharing your recipe, mama. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen Chalet Jan 2010.
