Thirsty Thursday: Fire Water

Note: Yesterday's post was one of our most read to date. And, yes, I will keep hunting for the healthiest news I can find. We are in this together!

I have been fired up all week and today is no exception. Actually, today I can use this fiery attitude of mine to play a little and share a great recipe for a spicy drink. No, no chilies but ginger. You may have guessed that I bought way too many ginger ales the other week and so it has been fun thinking up new ways to drink them. Lucky for me, Thirsty Thursday rolls around just in time!

And so, here is a great recipe for today's Happy Hour. Grab a nice tall glass...mix this drink...find a porch with a cool breeze. Ahhhh!

Double "Gin" Tonic

Fill tall glass with ice.  
1 ½ oz Bombay Sapphire gin (or your fave) 
5 oz real ginger ale like Reed's 
½ oz fresh lemon or lime juice  
Garnish with a lime wedge

And, if you really want to spice things up, go for a Triple "Gin". Add a sprinkle or two of the crystallized ginger chips pictured. Spicy little balls of fire. They are at some specialty shops, Whole Foods and Williams-Sonoma. If you can't find them, just add in a thin slice of regular crystallized ginger. Sassy!
