Having people over this weekend and planning to theme the drinks with a particular ingredient- I'm thinking of ginger syrup (the purchased kind, I haven't tasted it yet to see how strong it is). I also have one of the Canton nips, although probably only enough for one drink.
Anyone have a favorite ginger cocktail, or recommendations for ingredients to pair ginger with? I was thinking of a ginger sidecar using ginger syrup instead of Cointreau, but haven't tested it yet to see if the flavors go. I'm guessing it would also go well with dark rum, similar to the dark and stormy. I'm leaning towards brown spirits for a more wintery feel, and I have the basic spirits but not many frilly syrups or liqueurs (not opposed to buying a few things but I'm on a budget).
