The Gingie Royale

Sparkly, fresh, spicy, spiked with vitamin C and digestively-friendly ginger, here's a lovely cocktail to brighten your January. Whether you're plagued by the grey weather, the holiday hangover, the threat of the flu bug that's tearing through the office, or the bloat left by too many Christmas cookies, the Gingie Royale is just what the apothecary ordered! 

This recipe was a spontaneous creation of mine made with very spicy-nicey ginger liqueur that my sister found in Portland. The fancy French kind is called Domaine De Canton. But you should know that infused liqueurs are incredibly easy and economical to make at home. A companion recipe for ginger liqueur will hopefully be forthcoming, if it works as well as I just promised it would.
