Like ice cream, there can never be too many flavors of martini. Serve this one for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas ... or any other day of the year.
A Cocktail For All Seasons
Yes, a ginger martini tastes great in July, but ginger is a spice that recalls the crisp air of fall, gingerbread and pumpkin pie. This recipe mixes vodka with Ginger Soother, a refreshing beverage made by The Ginger People (GingerPeople.com) and available nationwide at Whole Foods Markets and other fine retailers.
Ginger isn’t just tasty—it’s also a powerful antioxidant said to be superior to vitamin E.* It helps neutralize free radicals, too.† That’s not why we’re reaching for a tasty ginger martini—but it’s a nice side benefit!
