How to Craft Cocktails with Fiery Ginger Syrup

So you have your Liber & Co. Fiery Ginger Syrup. Next stop? Crafting cocktails, obviously. Below are two recipes, one from Heavy Muddle and one from Liber & Co. both of which are a great way to get started. Before we get started, there are a few tips and tricks when making cocktails that can improve the taste and drinking experience. 

Shaken vs. Stirred

When it comes to shaking vs. stirring there is one general rule to follow. If your cocktail is just alcohol, you stir, but if there are any other ingredients like simple syrup or fruit juice, you shake. How strict of a rule is this? It’s usually followed pretty universally, but if you’re in a rush and you don’t have time to break out your cocktail shaker, then no worries 

Aromatics and Garnishes

When it comes to using aromatics as garnishes, make sure you get the most out of them by releasing their natural oils. If you’re using an herb like rosemary, thyme, or basil, slap it against your wrist or palm. This will immediately release oils and enhance the aroma. If you’re using a citrus peel, then give it a twist and rub it along the rim of the glass.
