Ginger cocktails are amazing drinks that complement any occasion. Ginger, as an ingredient, brings that perfect blend of spice and heat to any drink but it also has amazing health benefits, which makes it the perfect addition.

Here are some ginger-infused drinks to try out this weekend. If you are using ginger root you will need to peel, wash and boil them to get a nice concentrate. Do the same for the powder to make mixing easier. Sieve the ginger mixture separately before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients.
