This is a spicy spin on the Cosmo. It uses ginger beer to give it some kick. From Bon Appetit, November 2005


  1. Shake all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a Martini glass.
  2. Garnish with a slice of crystallized ginger.

I love the idea of this drink, and it is spicy, refreshing and different, but I think the ratios are a bit off. I'm glad I used a good vodka, because the taste of it really came through. It wasn't too strong on vodka, but the flavours of the lemon and ginger were a bit too weak. I think I'd add a bit more ginger beer and a bit more lemon juice next time. I'll definitely play around with this one some more! Thanks Mary!
