  • 3 ounces of vodka
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger syrup
  • 1 small piece of freshly cut ginger
  • 1 ounce of ginger ale
  • 2 thinly sliced orange zests


Add the vodka and ginger syrup to a glass shaker that is half-full of cracked ice and let stand for about a minute.

Rub the fresh ginger around the inside of 2 chilled martini glasses.

Back to your shaker and shake, shake, shake.

Strain your cocktail into the martini glasses and add ½ of the ginger ale to each glass.

Each glass gets an orange zest.
