Ginger Mohito


Hello hungry peoples,

This cocktail is inspired by one I enjoyed on a comedy cruise out of Sydney. I have long sworn off boats, after I used to get paid to work on them. The concept of paying someone else for the privilidge of extreme motion sickness seems insane to me. I thought I would literally test the waters by sailing out of Sydney for three days. I can handle three days, even if it turns into a vomitous extravaganza! It turned out that there was not a single wave and I was more in danger of extreme over indulgence.

This cocktail is great in that it is super easy to make. It doesn’t require a sugar syrup like most cocktails, and it is dangerously non-alcoholic tasting. Trust me though…… it is there and you will get kablammo-ed if you over do it. It is even low calorie. More by accident than intent like most of the things I make. Let’s get into it!
