How to make a ginger drink:
I think fresh ginger goes well in just about any drink. Ok, there are exceptions, but it's a fave. Sometime I make a ginger simple syrup for my cocktails and mocktails, but I wanted this flavor to really stand up to the peach nectar.
I added freshly grated ginger to the peach ginger fizz. They key is to grate the ginger very finely. I use a microplane grater, like this one. Peel and grate the ginger over a cutting board or bowl so you capture not only the lovely pulp, but the juices that come with it. The microplane grater helps pull the woody strings out of the ginger so you don't end up with them in your drink.
Make peach ginger fizz for a summer party, or just a weeknight dinner with the family. It's sure to make any summer day wonderful.
I add this fresh ginger right to my drink mixture. With ice and all the other lovely flavors, it adds that fresh, zesty punch.
How to rim a cocktail glass:
The key to a fun drink is to make if festive and pretty. I rimmed the cocktail glasses with sparkly crystal sugar for that added flare.
To rim a cocktail glass simply rub the cut side of a lime or lemon wedge on the top rim of the glass then dip it in a bowl or your sugar or salt. The citrus juice doesn't melt the sugar like water would, and helps it stick to the glass quite well.
I love fun glasses for cocktails, but if you're turning this peach ginger fizz into a mocktail for the kids, these plastic cocktail glasses are just the thing. Shatter proof and easy to use at a party.
This bright mocktail touts the zing of fresh ginger. Make an adult version by swapping the sparkling water for champagne or sparkling wine.
