The boy and his poison: Ginger Brew

In my eyes, there's only one thing better than cocktails… steak and cocktails, which is why the small Hawksmoor chain has such a special place in my heart. I was fortunate enough to be taken there to recover after a fairly heavy birthday weekend and decided I needed something fizzy, and with a sly little kick that could take the edge off of a blinding headache sufficiently enough to enjoy the incredible food.

Shakey Pete's Ginger Brew leapt off of the menu. Last summer I adopted ginger beer shandies as my sundowner of choice and this drink combines all the taste of that drink with the icy hit of a slush puppy and the ABV of a turbo shandy. I highly recommend popping in to their new bar if you're out in East London, or better still pick up a copy of Hawksmoor At Home to get the proper recipe for the ginger syrup. But if, like me, you're in need of a quick fix to the 'spinning room' problem this should hit the spot.

You'll need:
  • 50ml of gin
  • 25ml ginger cordial (Bottle Green's Ginger and Lemongrass worked well)
  • 25ml of lemon juice
  • A small bottle of beer
  • Half a glass of crushed ice (use a blender or a rolling pin and a plastic bag)
Make it
  • Pour the gin, cordial and lemon juice into any available long glass you have and stir
  • Add the ice
  • Top up slowly with the beer

  1. Just catching up on my Domestic Sluttery (I know I'm weeks behind!) but my boy is a huge fan of ginger so I'll have to make this for him - it'll put a big smile on his face!
