I made a small batch of it. I didn't think it would be so good. Great taste of ginger. This is perfect like that. Nothing more to add. Thanks CadillacGirl :) Made for Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7
I made this for the African Challenge for ZWT#7 2011. I love ginger beer and this was great with the orange and lime juice. I also liked the touch of cardamom and cloves. Thanks! I did add just a touch of pineapple juice in one cup, liked that too.
