Spindrift Ginger Beer: The Spicy Gingerman

ginger beer cocktail

The holidays are upon us, so right now most of us are in the midst of deciding where to spend the holidays–will it be at Aunt Sally’s house or perhaps at your own home? The preceding question would then be: What are we going to have?

Well, first you would want the item(s) to be festive, fun, and flavorful. So might we suggest serving the Spicy Gingerman Cocktail? Our version is specifically made with Spindrift Ginger Beer because their products are made with fresh squeezed fruits, tripled filtered water, and always refreshing. Spindrift’s Ginger Beer is made with 4-6g fresh ginger root and freshly squeezed lemon in ever 12 oz. bottle–how’s that for refreshing?

Read on for the full recipe.

A little bit more about Spindrift:

Spindrift uses fresh ingredients for their sodas every chance possible. Fresh means it isn’t cooked to the consistency of motor oil (“concentrate”) or treated with harsh chemicals. It means they squeeze the lemons, limes, grapefruits, oranges and rush them in cold 1 gallon containers to the production facility all in matter of days.

The recipe is simple and delicious! The faint hints of vanilla and butterscotch combined with the tantalizing flavor of ginger beer is simply outstanding.


1 oz. Vanilla Vodka

1 oz. Hazelnut Liqueur

1/2 oz. Butterscotch Schnapps

2 oz. Spindrift Ginger Beer

Cinnamon Stick


Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake over ice. Pour over ice into a  glass and garnish with Cinnamon stick.

Spindrift Ginger Beer is raw, real and delicious. Each bottle contains more than twice the ginger of the leading competitor with 13% less sugar!  It is a hot ingredient in popular cocktails like Dark ‘n Stormy and Moscow Mule.
