What is Ginger Beer?

Ginger beer and ginger ale are different!

Spicy ginger beer has more of a bite from ginger, and much less sweetness or sugar.

It is absolutely perfect in a cocktail recipe and balances well with sweet flavors. Ginger beer creates fizzy drinks from carbonation.

Best Ginger Beer for Cocktails

Are you on the hunt for the best ginger beer for cocktails with the perfect balance for your taste buds?

This will ultimately come down to preference, but ginger beer is known for its slightly spicy kick. Similar to fresh ginger.

I recommend using a good ginger beer, especially when it is one of the prominent flavors of the drink. By trying different brands you will learn what you like more than others!

What are my favorite ginger beers? My all-time favorite is Fever Tree Ginger Beer followed by Safeway brand (surprisingly). I find the Kroger and Target brands to not be very sharp or spicy, but you might prefer that!
