Thirsty Thursday: Shake Up a Ginger Rum Shandy

By: Roberto Ferdman

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last week we stirred up a spicy Apple-Thyme Martinithis week we’re back with a another fall-inspired sip.

As far as beer-based cocktails go, it's pretty hard to go wrong with a shandy. Mixed with citrus, soda, lemonade or cider, ther're a great way to help cool off during hot summer days, but opt instead for ginger beer, ginger ale or best of all, fresh ginger, and you've got the perfect fall cocktail. With spiced rum, apple juice, freshly sliced ginger and lime, Chuck's Ginger Rum Shandy couldn't be more appropriate for the season. Drink up, folks.
