Simultaneously coy and assertive, this drink from Duggan McDonnell of San Francisco’s Cantina is well balanced yet boldly flavored. It’s great made to order but would do equally well as a punch at your next party.
If you’ve made your own ginger beer (and we think you should), then go ahead and use it here. Otherwise, look for a ginger beer that suits your taste. We prefer those with a nice note of sweet and a good kick of ginger, like Regatta.
