gingerSNAP!

October 29th, 2010

Friday is here! And I have a tasty drink for you! This is one of the cocktails I served at the last Supper Club and it was quite the hit. It’s made with a craft liquor called SNAP made in Philadelphia by the folks at Art in the Ages. It’s hard to put your finger on what SNAP tastes like, except that it’s inspired by gingersnaps with hints of molasses and ginger. One whiff of the stuff and it smells like Christmas cookies. Anywho, I ran with that idea and whipped up a nice, fall/wintery cocktail complete with bourbon and ginger syrup. I think it would be a great holiday party beverage.

Until then, I have less than a month to complete my 30/30 goals! Yikes! Oh, and in other exciting news, the third issue of my magazine Remedy Quarterly has finally been printed and is due to be delivered early next week. That is certainly reason for celebrating!

So cheers! To getting things done!

gingerSNAP!

1 oz SNAP
1/2 oz bourbon
1 oz ginger syrup*
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
candied ginger to garnish

1
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake for 10 seconds.
2
Strain into a cute glass. Garnish with candied ginger and enjoy!

*To make ginger syrup, bring equal portions of water and sugar to a boil. Add in an an equal amount (or slightly less) chopped ginger and simmer for about 30 minutes. Once the syrup is spicy enough for you, strain the ginger chunks out and you’re ready to go.

    Kelly, this looks delicious! Did your order SNAP online, or have you found a liquor store in Brooklyn that sells it? I’d love to pick some up this weekend!

    This looks great! Art of the Ages also makes a liquor called Root that tastes exactly like root beer – delicious mixed even just with club soda! I bought some for my friend’s birthday a few weeks ago; saw Snap in the store too and wondered about it, so glad to hear it’s delicious!

    I keep hearing about this SNAP stuff! Thanks for the recipe, you’ve just motivated me to order some SNAP online. (Sadly, I can’t seem to find it in New Orleans.)

    Again, if yohr familly recentpy moved to a new neighborhood,
    starting upp a soccer team is a fantastic way tto meet
    new people and make friends. In 1920, the American Professional Football Association came into being.
    During this time, blinbd pick prevnts each sidxe from seeing what champions the other side picks, andd allows both teams to hzve the same champions.
