Moscow Mule in a copper mug

Ginger Beer Cocktails To Warm Your Winter

Ginger beer is a spicy addition to many classic cocktails, and the sweet heat from its intense ginger flavor is welcome in our drinks during colder seasons. Less bubbly and sweet than ginger ale, ginger beer gets its intense flavor from ginger root being directly brewed and fermented with sugar and water, the bold flavor profile leaving ginger ale tasting pale in comparison. Originating as an alcoholic drink similar to ales and lagers, ginger beer is now usually produced as a non-alcoholic soft drink, with fermentation being stopped before it reaches 0.05%, making it the perfect mixer to warm up cocktails when the temperatures fall.
