Ginger wine

A green bottle of ginger wine, used in cocktail recipes

Ginger wine is a spirit made from a fermented mash of ginger root and raisins, often fortified with brandy. It’s a popular tipple in the UK and Germany, and is even beginning to pop up from producers in the US.

Compared to ginger beer, ginger wine is less spicy and has a more complex flavor profile. It’s also not carbonated, although it is lovely with fizzy beverages (bitter lemon soda is our favorite). It is thinner, less sweet and less spicy than ginger liqueur, and can’t be used interchangeably with it.

  • Stone's Ginger Wine
Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
