Wild Ginger Cocktail

Ever measured your drink pours by counting out one thousand, two thousand, three thousand…? If not, allow Alan Cumming to demonstrate! Already in the habit of throwing nightly backstage parties in his Broadway dressing room, the actor now owns Club Cumming, a fun, inclusive East Village bar where literally everyone can get in on the action. There’s plenty of dancing, singing, live performances, and general merrymaking (even knitting!) in addition to strong drinks like the Wild Ginger, which starts with a wallop of Wild Turkey, gets feisty with Fireball cinnamon whiskey, and is topped off with bubbly ginger beer and lime juice. Check out the video to learn how to tend bar like Alan does—but if just watching those incredibly generous pours makes you feel woozy, see more standard measurements at left. It’s still gonna pack a punch.

For something less spicy but certainly no less boozy, get the club’s Up and Cumming cocktail recipe too.

  • What to buy

    Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer

    You can buy alcoholic ginger beers, but there are also several non-alcoholic versions kicking around in grocery stores and online. They tend to be spicier and have more bite than ginger ale, but are still nice and fizzy. Specific tastes vary between different brands, but a few good names to look for include Bundaberg, Gosling's, and Fever-Tree.
