I was tired and frustrated last night after the all day soap making disaster. I decided I needed a little cheering up and felt the need to create something to prove to myself I still could. I also wanted a little something sweet. Here is what I came up with:
Fill the well of a margarita glass with you favorite tequila...I used Antiqua Cruz which is so mellow that it has no bite at all making it dangerous stuff.
Squeeze a little meyer lemon juice into the tequila.
Drop a piece of candied ginger into it.
Fill the rest of the glass with Reed's Extra Ginger ginger beer.
Run the meyer lemon around the top of the glass and enjoy the drink.
The piece of ginger began to fizz as soon as I dropped it in and continued to do so until I had finished the drink.
I am sure that this would be OK with a regular lemon but nothing tastes quite like a meyer.
I would not bother to make it with regular ginger ale.
I have not thought of a name for this cocktail and am open to suggestions.
